About Trees – Kent Tree Surgeons


Cable Bracing

Cable Bracing

About Trees Ltd can provide a Cable Bracing service covering the whole of Kent.

A tree can be a specimen tree, something really special, but still have potential areas where faults could occur. If the situation dictates that we can do so and that safety will be improved we can suggest that a Cable Bracing system can be installed to strengthen up weak branches, or branches that have poor unions (joints) with the main stem of the tree, or V-shaped forks with included bark.

These systems are the most modern up to date on the market and have been tested and developed over many years, and unlike the old-fashioned steel systems do not penetrate the wood of the tree at all (non-invasive). They are low impact but offer high effectiveness. The system that we use has a life expectancy of 12 years.

About Trees Ltd will install these cable bracing systems in the tree and will carry out a yearly safety check on homes in and around Kent to make sure that everything is still in place as it should be.

In the past we have carried out cable bracing on specimen trees with faults whilst replacement trees have been given the time to grow until they are such a size where they can replace the original tree.

Such is the technology of modern materials this is a real progressive alternative and makes tree retention even easier.

Tree work recommendations states: “Flexible restraint – the installation of a flexible material, either synthetic fibre ropes or steel cables, to reduce dynamic loading on potentially weak structures and thereby to restrain excessive movement. This operation is normally accompanied by pruning to reduce the loading on weak structures in the tree.” In extreme cases it may be worth considering removal of the tree and re-planting with a more suitable species.
