Storm Bracing and Tree Repair

Storm weather in North Texas can cause a tremendous amount of stress to trees that are older or have grown in a manner that is structurally unsound. To protect against damage from winds and heavy ice, a cable can be inserted into the tree to help strengthen weak branches and limbs. This preventative technique is known as bracing. Depending on the situation, it can include bolting and/or cabling techniques that will help support or repair branches.

Trees with a co-dominant stem are often in need of bracing, as the tree has grown in a manner that is structurally unsound. The Certified Arborists at Tree Shepherds can help you identify which trees in your yard could benefit from bracing.

Whether a tree is old or has not developed correctly, certain bracing techniques can help prevent unnecessary breakage and improve longevity.
