Structural Bracing

A STRONG TREE TO BRACE THE ELEMENTS

Through complex structures of wood fibers and specialized cells, trees have the ability to hold themselves up for hundreds of years even through the strongest winds and heaviest of snow falls. Although sometimes trees will develop imperfections during their development that can become catastrophic down the road.

WHAT IS EFFECTING YOUR TREE

  • Girdling roots – roots from the tree can grow at an improper angle causing them to grow around the main trunk or a large root, preventing it from providing nutrients to the tree, subsequently killing the root.

  • Compaction – The weight of foot and vehicular traffic and even excessive irrigation can over time cause soil to tamp down, reducing water and air penetration to the roots.

  • Too deep – Whether it be a result of grade changes or from plating the tree too deep, trees can sometimes be too far in the soil to effectively exchange nutrients.

WE CAN HELP KEEP YOUR TREE STANDING

STRENGTHING YOUR TREE

The certified arborists at Horticare can recognize these issues and when deemed acceptable can install one of the numerous varieties of structural braces to prevent further failure of the tree. Although there is no procedure that entirely removes the chances of a tree falling, this greatly reduces the tree’s potential for failure and allows clients to preserve trees that otherwise would have to be removed due to the danger they pose. If you feel that this is something your trees could benefit from, schedule your property evaluation today!
