Tree Bracing and Cabling
Tress grows in various ways, depending on their location and size. However, some ways by which some trees grow are never safe for long time life of the tree. Even though this condition is rare, it happens in some cases. There are so many things that influence the unsafe growth of trees. These factors include the species of the trees, failure to prune the tree on time among many other factors.
These factors should they occur on a tree might lead to very many unwanted situations. These situations include poor branch structure that would be more likely to break if not properly reinforced. The use of the tree bracing and cabling method might help protect the tree from any form of failure.
The bracing and cabling method reinforces the most delicate parts of the tree helps prevent any unnecessary movements that could lead to any part of the tree breaking. With reduced movements, there will be a very minimal chance of the tree, causing any harm or injury to humans. Other than that, the trees will also not be able to pose any threat to the available property.
However, it is essential to note that not all trees are capable of getting supported by the tree support systems like tree bracing and cabling. The ability of a tree to get supported by these systems depends on so many things. Given this possibility, it will be essential to always enquire from a tree doctor about the best approach to use on a structurally weak tree before carrying out the procedure at any given time.
One of the most famous examples of a potential tree structure failure is in situations where there are one or more codominant stems. In such cases, the structure of the branch union is usually structurally weak compared to single-stemmed trees.
The weaknesses in the Codominant tree structure are always due to lack of a connecting tissue that anchors a stem to the trunk of a tree. If the Codominant tree stems are left to stand for long, they will increase the chances of the tree suffering structural failure.
The most excellent way to avoid such a condition will be to make sure you avoid any tree with a codominant stem in the first place. This way, you will have gotten rid of the problem even before it occurs. As for the trees that come with a poor branch structure, it will be essential for you to ensure you prune the trees on time to prevent them from growing up with a weak structure.
Trees that grow up with a poor branch structure too will require some level of attention. For such trees, the only way to help solve the problem will be to carry out the bracing and cabling procedure to help support the branches.
When trees exhibit signs of weaknesses, the only way of solving the problem will be to come up with the right corrective measures. The most preferred corrective action for the weak tree structure condition includes the use of cables and rods. The cabling system mainly consists of Extra high strength flexible steel brand cables that get a touched to bolts and are installed in trees by drilling holes through them.
The cabling method helps to reduce the stress on the tree that comes from either high-speed winds or snow.
The other method that could get used to supporting structurally weak trees is the use of braces. The bracing process mainly involves the use of thread rods that get a touched at the positions of branches considered to be weak. The use of tree bracing only works well in conditions where the trees have codominant stems.
The cables work by preventing the tree branches from spreading apart, which is a condition that could lead to the branches breaking.
Tree bracing and cabling is the best method that can get used to supporting the structurally weak trees. The process is critical but very complicated. To get the best out of these services, contact Port St Lucie’s best tree trimming and tree removal services for assistance.
