Cable Bracing

 

Tree surgery experience indicates that the introduction of artificial support into a tree (cable bracing) may in appropriate circumstances extend the tree's safe life and/or lessen the damage done should the supported part collapse.

 

Some trees can have structures susceptible to climatic damage. For example, cedars tend to produce plates of foliage at the end of a branch and such branches hold snow and may snap under the weight. It is not uncommon for repeated fractures to occur in such trees and as a result pruning or removal of the tree can be more appropriate than bracing. The upright branches of cypresses can be permanently displaced by snow. Such branches can be supported with netting or they should be pruned out.
