Prep Your Trees Before Winter Storms Arrive

Posted on:



Has a Certified Arborist inspected your trees lately? After a Certified Arborist comes to inspect your trees for signs of decay in trees’ root systems and trunks and inspect crowns of trees for dead branches or other indications of weakness – the arborist may suggest installing a cable or a system of cables. 

Tree Cabling Explained

Tree cabling is the installation of flexible steel into the destabilized tree to reduce stress damage from high winds, heavy foliage, and/or the weight of snow and ice. Cabling helps trees better withstand severe weather conditions and improve longevity; as well as, reinforces weak limbs to become stronger against unpredictable outside forces.

If you’ve never considered storm protection for your trees, it may be in your (and your trees) best interest to think again. Storm damaged trees are costly, and a dangerous aftermath of unpredictable winter storms. Schedule your ArborWISE Consultation a Certified Arborist today to discuss tree trimming, tree removal, or cabling options before winter storms arrive!
