Tree Cabling & Bracing
Does tree cabling or bracing actually work? Of course, these procedures work, when you do things right! The reason why we lead off with this is that we want to be clear on something! Just sticking a couple of wooden stakes in the ground and tying them to a tree does not guarantee any type of success. We don’t want to say that we are the people around that are going to be able to provide proper results in these situations. Yet, it is important that if you are going to go this route to help certain trees develop or correct their development you are doing it right. If not, you could just be wasting your time.
Tree Care or Tree Removal
When we are dealing with trees where we are going to need to correct their development, you are going to be faced with a couple of choices as the tree owner. Depending on the severity of the problem it is going to be more or less likely that we are going to be able to correct the development. We want to be honest about this, we don’t want to charge you for a long term treatment in a situation where we don’t see the possibility of obtaining reasonable results. In that case, tree removal could be the best option.
Should I Help My Young Developing Tree?
Are all trees going to need some type of external support? Especially in the earlier stages of their development. This answer is clearly now. If no trees would have ever been able to develop without the help of man, we would probably be out of oxygen by now. That being said, there are a couple of reasons why you may want to consider adding support to some of your young developing trees. If you happen to live in a very windy area, or if you can start to notice a bad growth pattern it can certainly be a good idea to add support systems.
What Type of Results Can I Expect From Bracing?
Usually what happens is that we are called in, and we find a tree that is tearing itself apart. The logical course of action would be to try and press it back together. As we mentioned before, it is very important for us to be honest about things. We are not going to be applying braces to trees unless we believe that you can expect to see a natural-looking tree after it is all set and done. Obviously, the results that we are going to be able to provide vary depending on the severity of the damage done to the tree!
How Long Does A Tree Have To Have Cables Attached To See Results?
Usually, for younger trees that we add support to, this support can be removed about a year and a half to two years. In other instances, it really depends on why we set up the cables of braces in the first place. There are instances where you could see great results within weeks.
