Do I Need To Brace & Cable My Trees Before Storm Season?
Not necessarily. If you have a healthy Athens or Watkinsville tree that is not getting too close to a structure or road, there is no need for tree cabling or bracing. Tree cabling and bracing is only used when trees are growing into places they shouldn’t, when certain branches of the tree are weak or leaning, and when part of the structure of the tree is unsafe. In these cases Porterfield’s tree cabling and bracing systems can be a great option. It allows your trees to grow in a healthy way while giving you peace of mind and a safe future. Absolutely get your trees evaluated before the Athens, Watkinsville storm season, to see if you need any cabling or bracing done.
At Porterfield Stump & Tree we take pride in our ability help trees become, strong, healthy, and safe though our expertise on tree cabling and tree bracing.
Will Cabling & Bracing Hurt My Trees?
No. Our cabling and bracing system is engineered in such a way that it will not damage your tree in anyway long term. Our local to Athens and Watkinsville tree bracing and cabling systems will strengthen your tree over time. By taking stress off of certain branches and allowing others to redirect it gives your tree the environment it needs to become a safe, healthy and strong tree once more.
I Have A Tree That Is Forked Close To The Trunk Should I Get Cabling or Bracing Done?
Yes. Having a tree that is forked or has multiple stems can cause a tree to be structurally unsafe. Instead of paying the much higher price to get your Athens or Watkinsville tree removed. We would recommend you look into Porterfield’s cabling and bracing methods. With cabling and bracing we create support for your tree and take the weight and stress off unstable branches. This allows your tree to continue growing without jeopardizing the safety of your Athens or Watkinsville home or business.
Can I Get Cabling Or Bracing For My Older Tree?
Great Question! Yes. Whether your structurally compromised tree is an old tree or a young tree, they both can both benefit from cabling and bracing. We recommend that you catch any weak structural branches as young as possible. If this hasn’t happened we have no problem cabling and bracing older trees. We have done many cabling and bracing jobs in the Watkinsville and Athens areas. We cable and brace for both structural weakness and to redirect branches out of the way of Athens or Watkinsville walkways, roads and homes.
