Cabling and Bracing Systems

Cabling and Bracing Systems

Cabling and bracing support systems are used to reduce the hazard potential of trees with specific, structural defects.

They can be used to successfully prolong the life of an otherwise desirable tree, but are not advisable for every situation. Cabling and bracing should only be installed when tree owners are willing to take responsibility for regular inspection and maintenance pruning over the remaining life of the tree. These support systems cannot guarantee prevention of limb or tree failure, but are designed to reduce the potential of and damage should limb failure occur. 

Sperry Tree Care offers advice and installation of both traditional static, steel hardware systems as well as dynamic Cobra soft cabling systems successfully.

When you are in the Eugene, Oregon area you can see some of our cabling work in the historic Owen Cherry Tree at the Owen Rose garden.
