Tree Cabling & Bracing
Bracing & Cabling Trees with Multi-Trunks
Multi-trunked trees are, by their very structure, prone to failure. Due to its growth nature, each trunk competes for canopy room, causing the branches and leaves to grow away from the center of the tree's axis. Additional, the root systems themselves also compete for space, causing them to grow out wider providing for a less deep base. And just a single failure in one of the trunks can have collateral damage to the entire tree. Both bracing with rods and cabling can significantly reduce the inherent risks of multi-trunked trees. Each multi-trunked tree is different, so contact Chesapeake Tree's certified arborists for the ideal bracing and cable configuration suited for your tree.
