Trees can have structural issues in the normal course of their growth cycle. But these issues don’t necessarily indicate that the tree needs to be cut down. Instead, a tree service company such as MOB Tree Service can assess any issues and suggest a tree support solution.
When a mature tree grows heavy or weak branches, property owners may become concerned about what can happen if branches were to break and fall. Additionally, steep branch unions can split, leading to potential structural issues. Storm damage prevention in the form of bracing, cabling, or rodding can help Mobile, Alabama residents rest easy knowing their trees are well supported.
Contact MOB Tree Service to obtain an estimate and get your tree situated for when the next storm comes.
There are a few different types of tree cabling. In some cases, our arborists will utilize a technique called dynamic cabling. This involves wrapping supports around particular branches and connecting them in order to bring stability and prevent falling or snapping limbs. A medium tension between branches allows for tree growth and flexibility in stormy conditions. While we cannot guarantee that branches will not fall, this technique keeps the tree in a positive condition.
Occasionally it is necessary to install bracing rods in the tree. This is a more invasive structural insert, however it can secure branches in some cases where the alternative would be a severed and removed limb. Rodding can bolt limbs together that have split, extending the life of these limbs within the overall tree structure.
While we can’t predict when storms will hit our Mobile, AL homes and businesses, we can prepare for them ahead of time by installing tree cabling and bracing where needed. Whether your tree suffers from a poor root system or has a lot of fruit which weighs the tree down, consider extending your tree’s life by seeking out tree service to install rodding and cabling where necessary. Trees grow and change over time, but a proper support system can keep your tree branches safe when high winds and inclement weather hit the Heart of Dixie.
Heavy rain and sleet, as well as strong winds can decimate a tree’s branches. This is especially true when your tree has existing splits, cracks, or limbs weighed down by heavy fruit. The best way to preserve your tree’s beautiful structure and shape is to install cabling and bracing where needed. Our arborists are specially trained and certified to provide a minimally invasive support system that protects your limbs from falling, which can damage people and property. When rodding or cabling are not recommended solutions, it can be necessary for your tree service professionals to remove limbs in order to save the tree itself. However, our assessment will let you know the solutions we recommend.
