Tree Support Systems – Cabling, Bracing, and Guying in Sherbrooke and Estrie
Why Install Tree Support Systems
Tree support systems are installed to preserve trees that have a structural weakness in a trunk, branch or roots. These support systems can be installed when a tree with two main trunks, known as co-dominant trunks, has already started to split and trunk failure is imminent. Without the extra support of cables and bracing rods, trees in that condition would normally need to be removed immediately for safety reasons. It is always best to have a tree risk assessment done early by a qualified person, since tree trunk, branch or root failure often occurs suddenly. Work done by an unqualified person may cause more harm than good. Call us to request an inspection!
Our Expert Advice – Cabling
Investing in cabling trees that have a weak structure, such as co-dominant trunks, is money well spent. Cabling can prevent a possibly much larger, un-budgeted expense caused by a major trunk failure. Once installed, a cabling system can protect a tree from trunk failure for 20 to 30 years. It can also save trees with trunks that are already splitting and would otherwise need to be cut, making them safe and able to be appreciated for many years to come.
