Skilled Tree Cabling and Bracing Services in Portland, Oregon
Tree cabling is a preventative measure that consists of tethering two or more limbs together to help healthy trees with structural defects resist the stresses of extreme weather. Cabling can actually prevent a tree from needing to be removed.
Our tree experts use the Tree Guard non-invasive cabling system
Urban Timber uses the Tree Guard system because it better supports trees, thanks to its flexible cables. As a tree moves in the wind, snow, or ice, the cables move with it. Plus, expanding collars ensure that the tree isn’t girdled as it grows. If the system becomes overloaded, an indicator shows on the collar. This is a huge improvement over traditional static steel cables, which can fail without warning.
