Tree Bracing for High Risk Trees

 

In some cases, steel cabling and bracing are required to add

structural support to trees. There are three reasons for this:

  • Prevention: The cables and braces will prevent a trees

health from declining due to storm stress and the weight

of snow, ice, and foliage

  • Restoration: The cables and braces provide support

to trees that lost one of their main leaders due to a storm

or tree removal and may not be as structurally strong in

harsh weather.

  • Mitigation: The cables and braces will reduce the

chances of multi-stemmed trees becoming a hazard in

busy areas.

Cabling and bracing are the two most common forms of

structural support for trees. They involve installing flexible cables

(Dynamic Support Systems) or rigid rods (Threaded Rods) to

reduce the chances of failure. Cables are typically installed high

in the tree and bolting rods are installed much lower, just above

and/or below the defect. Cables are better and healthier alternative

over rods because of their greater leverage and flexibility for future

maintenance.

What does the bracing process look like?

First, have one of our qualified arborists assess the trees overall structural integrity and health. There are many signs we can see which are not always prominent or apparent and our experience can help with that.

Proper placement is the key to the installation of any tree bracing techniques. There are many important technical aspects to correct cabling and bracing and the first is the choice of hardware. What are the strengths of the hardware and what are the features, benefits and limitation in each circumstance? Where are we going to place it and in what configuration? Single, multiple, triangle or star are some of the ways we handle this.

Our primary solution here at ArborPro Tree Trimming is the use of Dynamic Support Systems, things like the Cobra or Boa offer this. Trees are complex living organisms and they need to move and bend and flex in order to sense where they need response wood for strength. Much like leaving a tree staked too long, the tree doesn’t grow the necessary root for structure and stability. When a tree bends, flexes and moves in the wind, the symplast (just under the bark of the tree) creates a stimulus that in turn causes the tree to add response wood in the areas it needs. This is a huge benefit with our support systems as they help the tree achieve that and become stronger with elasticity and rubber inserts in the ropes.

The dynamic systems are also less invasive and, rather than drilling into the tree and inserting through bolts, the dynamic support systems go around the tree and can expand as the tree grows, therefore not girdling the tree either. If we install static or steel cables with bolts into the tree we take this ability away from the tree. However in extreme circumstances we will resort to bolts and rigid cables should the wounds or value of the tree warrant it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What are the benefits of Tree Pruning?

 

At ArborPro Tree Service, our knowledge and experience are matched only by our passion and dedication for keeping Mother Nature healthy. Having the trees on your property trimmed up by qualified arborists will help to enhance the look of your property, increase the value of your home, extend the life of your trees, and most importantly, keep you, your family, and staff safe from the hazards of falling limbs.

Tree Pruning:

  • Improves plant health and longevity

  • Improves tree appearance and shape

  • Maximises sunlight into a property

  • Removes weak branches/fronds that are a risk

  • Ensures building and power line clearance

  • Correct irregular growing habits

  • Encourage an earlier bloom

  • Increase the quantity of fruit/flowers

Our tree trimming service Christchurch helps maximise your tree or plants growth, form and structure. However, it is important that trimming is done correctly or the health of a tree can be significantly affected.

It’s vital that tree trimming is done at the right time, using the right technique and in accordance to the plants specific structure and growth habits. If a plant is trimmed improperly it can cause lasting negative effects which range from stunted growth, failure to produce to significantly shortening its lifespan. This is why it’s imperative that

tree trimming is conducted by experts, such as the team at ArborPro Tree Service Christchurch.

Types Of Tree Pruning :

With our experienced Arborists, we perform all of the following tree pruning services:

  • Deadwood Removal – dead branches, particularly Eucalyptus, naturally shed from a tree at any time. Pruning prevents them from dropping to the ground and reduces the risk of falling limbs, ensuring the safety of your family and neighbours.

  • Selective Tree Pruning – removing specific branches that are causing problems over buildings, power lines or walkways.

  • Reduction Pruning – often undertaken on mature, declining trees where the removal of damaged or diseased branches are pruned back to healthy, undamaged timber. This promotes new shoots which in time create a new tree canopy and can save a tree or prolong its lifespan. 

  • Crown Thinning – pruning smaller secondary branches to increase air circulation and sunlight into a property.

  • Crown Lifting – clears low hanging branches to provide clearance for vehicles, walkways or underplanting.

  • Formative Pruning – done when the tree is young with the goal of creating a well shaped, strong and safe tree. 

  • Fruit Tree Pruning - All fruit trees have a correct season or time of year to prune and is essential for the trees health and maintenance.

  • Protected Tree pruning - Council Protected trees and trees on the heritage list have very strict guidelines about what method and how much our qualified arborist is allowed to prune.
