Cabling and Bracing

Cabling a large tree would be necessary if you were looking to help save it from decay or twisting during a storm causing damage to property. 

In the majority of cases the survival rate is very high.   However, the sooner you have the tree braced and cabled does factor in the survival rate.

Cables are left on the tree until the trees’ roots have had a chance to re-root.  Most of the time this is about a six month period depending on the time of year.

Gordon’s Tree and Crane Service does this by saturating the ground to keep from causing addition damage to the root system, then winch or crane tree to an upright position.  Next cables are attached to the tree, which goes to rods that are implanted into the ground that holds the tree in place.

In most cases trimming your large tree might be a better route to take for the health of your tree and your pocketbook.
