Tree Cutting Services
Do you have a ornamental trees with a split in the trunk? If so learn how our tree cabling service can add years of life to a specimen tree. Direct cabling is the most basic of our tree cabling services.
The main purpose of tree bracing, or direct cabling, is to functionally tie the crown of the given tree as a cohesive unit.
Tying a tree can reduce the stress caused by wind or ice. In direct cabling, two limbs that are preferably at least 6 inches in diameter are tied or fastened to each other by means of a steel cable. This is to provide equivalent support to both branches.

Why Use a Professional Tree Cabling Company?
From a maintenance perspective, periodic inspections keep any slack out of sagging or stretched cables. There are no etched-in-stone rules available on the average life of a tree bracing cable. However, the U.S. National Park Service indicates that cables should be checked every time work is performed on the tree.
Aable John’s tree cabling services restore or improve the structural integrity of a tree that is worth preserving. First we attach ropes or chains to the main trunk and the weak limb. Tension is then applied to the weakened limb. To add support to the weakened limb we use heavy duty cables. These cables fasten and provide the correct amount of support.
It takes a great deal of technical expertise and experience to know how to protect the longevity of the living tree and the safety of those around it. Our tree cutting experts are experienced in all aspects of tree cabling and bracing.
Tree Cabling and Bracing Terminology
You can provide extra support for heavy branches by installing bolts and cables into the tree. When used wisely, cables may extend the life of a tree and reduce its risk of failure. If the tree has already failed, removal may be the only option for the tree.
Brace rods reduce the risk of two or more leaders from spreading further apart or moving sideways and to fasten together a crotch or branch that has split apart.
Cables restrict the distance that branches can move in relation to each other. Once a year the cabling, bolting and anchoring must be inspected. Time will tell if the tree needs to be removed.
Guying is the installation of a cable between a tree and an external anchor to provide support and reduce tree movement.
