Ever wonder what arborists dream about at night? Beautiful, healthy trees. What gives them nightmares? The thought of one of those trees suffering damage from a storm, a split trunk threatening the very life of the tree, or limbs stressed to their limit under the weight of snow or ice. Happily, this nightmare can be avoided with tree cabling. And Redding, CA is home to a local tree service trained in the art of tree cabling—A-1 Tree Service & Stump Removal.  

What is tree cabling? 

A certified arborist or tree service can identify stressed trees and limbs. They will use tree cables—and bracing rods if needed—to support weakened areas of a tree. The cables are placed between limbs or large branches. This allows the weight load to be equally distributed, thus saving one limb from bearing too much weight. 

Bracing rods can be used effectively in adhering to limbs that have split. The goal of tree cabling and/or bracing is to maintain the health of your trees and protect them from dangerous collapse. These methods are only effective if your tree hasn’t been extensively weakened by disease, pest infestation, or damage. 

Why is tree cabling so important?

The importance of tree cabling cannot be overstated. Your tree has to be able to support a significant amount of weight from limbs, branches, and dense foliage. Throw in the winter elements of high winds, snow, and ice buildup, and your tree is going to be feeling the pressure. 

Tree cabling is a proactive approach to provide the needed support and reinforcement your tree may require. Weak limbs or branches can be strengthened. And if a tree has a damaged trunk or branches, cabling can help prevent a collapse. Your tree will thank you for the extra layer of protection.
