When a tree shows signs of damage, cabling and bracing may be an option to consider but it is not always going to be the perfect solution to your tree’s problems. Sometimes the severity of structural damage is too great, and removal may be the more practical option. There also needs to be a sufficient amount of sound wood for cables and braces to be anchored to. Local Arborist can perform an assessment on your tree and help you decide if investing in cabling and bracing is the most appropriate option for your situation.
