The two kinds of tree limb bracing

First things first, what is tree limb bracing? To put it simply, it is a way of providing supplemental structural support that reduces the risk of failure of weak or multiple branches and stems. There are two main categories of tree limb bracing: dynamic and static. The first kind, dynamic, uses strong, flexible electric cables to allow for more movement. The branches can move with the wind when these kinds of cables are used. The second type of tree limb bracing, static, is when a high-strength steel cable is used to fasten the limbs much more securely. This is the correct choice for when tree parts have begun to fail, and also when movement is not desirable. Our tree surgeons in Woodbridge have experience installing both.

When is tree limb bracing needed?

There are a number of reasons for tree limb bracing, and no two jobs are the same. Four of the most common reasons for tree limb bracing are the following:

  • Co-dominant stems
  • Cracked unions
  • Cavities
  • Over-extended limbs

Of course, there may be another reason why your tree needs this kind of intervention. As the providers of the tree limb bracing Ipswich property owners trust, we are able to take things on a case-by-case basis. Tree limb bracing is major tree surgery, and the affected tree should be thoroughly assessed before a plan of action is put into place.

Leave it to the professionals

Needless to say, tree limb bracing is a job that should only be carried out by experienced tree surgeons. We have many years of experience to draw upon, and our team know how to work efficiently without cutting any corners. We’re also really knowledgeable when it comes to the legislation surrounding tree surgery – whether that’s environmental laws or health and safety regulations. When you hire us to work on a tree on your property, you can be sure that we will work in full accordance with all relevant legislation, giving you total peace of mind.

Ensure that it lasts with additional care

We also offer a wide range of services that complement tree limb bracing. In some cases, the efforts to restore the tree to its former glory with bracing fail – all because the tree surgeon didn’t take the time to point the customer towards additional methods. We recommend pruning to help reduce the weight and stress on the tree, as the branches and canopy can weigh down already vulnerable tree limbs. Long limbs are also prone to stress and damage in bad weather, so regular pruning is something that we strongly advise our customers to invest in once tree limb bracing has been carried out.
