Cabling and Bracing
Trees very often develop weak forks that need to be cabled or braced to prevent splitting. Often we are called after the tree has already begun to split or even fail completely. Cables installed correctly in a tree can extend the useful and safe life of a tree for decades. Split trees can often be pulled back together.
Austin Tree Specialists installs cables and bracing in trees every week. Sometimes we install more cables and bracing than all of the other tree companies combined. After sitting on the ISA subcommittee for the Cabling and Bracing of Trees, Pat helped to re-write the ANSI A-300 standards for Cabling and Bracing Trees. Austin Tree Specialists has cables in trees around town that are more than 30 years old and still doing the job for which they were intended.
