Expert Tree Bracing Services
If you have trees on your property that have started to show signs of weakness or failure, it may be time to consider tree bracing services. Tree bracing is a method of adding structural support to your trees that are no longer safe or structurally sound on their own. Typically, bracing systems are accompanied by cables as well that help limit the movement of branches that would cause further damage to the tree if left unassisted.
Trees could be damaged due to many causes. Some of the most common causes that we run-into with trees in Melbourne include: existence of codominant stems, storm damage, and improper pruning that leads to overextended branches. Some structural tree issues can be prevented through practices like proper pruning techniques, while some (like storm damage) are inevitable.
Bracing rods are used to hold together weak sections of your tree with one of two methods: through-rods or a dead-end configuration. Proper configuration is decided based on evaluation of the size and weak points of the tree. Typically, brace rods are accompanied by at least one cable for additional support. Bracing rods and cables work in tandem to support your trees holistically. Using supplemental support structures like bracing rods and cable systems help more evenly distribute the weight of the tree, especially if it is not symmetrically shaped.
It is also best for a certified arborist to periodically check the structural integrity of branch bracing support systems. This ensures that they are functioning efficiently and keeping people and your property safe. Our technicians provide routine checks like this often, and are qualified to maintain the safety and structure of your trees.
