You have to know just the right place to put these rods and supports because of twisting forces that they will incur from violent weather. The industry standard is upheld by only the best because it does take a lot of manual labor.
At Above Ground Tree Service, we use only materials and techniques that are in compliance with American National Standards Institute A-300 Standards. Chemicals of any kind can be damaging to your health, the health of your pets, and the health of your other plants, which is why it is so critical that you have someone who understands how, when, and where to apply chemicals.
Reasons for Tree Cabling
Tree cabling helps to support your trees from the elements, allowing them to grow stronger and taller. Think of tree cables as set of training wheels for your younger trees and walkers for your older trees.
Certified arborists place cables and brace rods to support the branches and stems on trees. The cables are made from high strength steel. They limit the movement of the branches so that they don’t break during a storm.
There are a few different trees that benefit from cabling, including:
Shumard Red Oak
Texas Red Oak
However, all open canopy trees, multi-trunk trees, and those that are prone to vertical splitting.
With weather like we have in Lynchburg and the surrounding areas, you will need to have your cables and bracing inspected annually. The normal movement and elements can cause the hardware to wear and reduce the efficiency.
Annual inspection by a certified arborist (preferably who you had install it) is necessary. This can be done in conjunction with pruning and trimming of the tree.

Tree Cabling for Tree Safety
Tree cabling is something you should definitely consider for the safety and health of your trees and home. With weather like we have in Forest, Bedford, Lynchburg, and Timberlake, Virginia, it is even more important.
If you have lightening protection, it is even more crucial that you reach out to a reputable company, as the conductor must be attached to the support cables.
