What Is Tree Cabling and Bracing?

Tree cabling and bracing are techniques used to support a tree’s physical structure. We offer these tree support systems at Armour Hill Tree Care. We can prevent tree loss, injury, or property damage by supporting hazardous trees through cabling and bracing.

Even when trees look healthy, they may not be as strong as they appear. Trees that are not regularly pruned may be particularly susceptible. Through the trained eyes of our arborists, we can tell if a tree is likely to suffer from breakage and offer a remedy in the form of tree support systems.

When is Cabling and Bracing Necessary?

We can mend the instability and structural deficiencies of a tree in the situations listed below.


We use cables to limit the movement of branches in the canopy, making them less likely to break off the tree.


We install bracing rods in the codominant branches to lower the possibility of the leading branches breaking or splitting.


We use stakes to keep the tree rooted in place and upright. We may also tie the stakes to the trunk of a younger tree or use several wires to anchor the tree to the ground.

Armour Hill Tree care utilizes dynamic cabling and bracing techniques after diagnosing the exact status of the trees in your background. We ensure that the right support system is installed to extend the lifespan of your trees and avoid any possible incidents.

When Are Tree Cabling and Bracing Done?

It is typically younger trees that undergo cabling and bracing. However, tree cabling and bracing are also commonly used in older trees needing support. We do this for older trees that have become unstable after extreme weather.

Trees in your Peterborough backyard may require cabling and bracing for the following reasons:

  • Extend the life of an unsafe tree
  • Repair broken, decayed, or split tree branches
  • Save a structurally weak tree from damage
  • Reduce the hazards of an already unstable tree
  • Support a tree trunk while growing
  • Prevent damage to occur due to ice or wind
