Most mature multi-trunked trees in Tucson, Az are susceptible to breakage under stress of wind.
Trees with “V” shaped or weak crotches, and split or decayed branch unions all pose a higher risk of failure. When used wisely, tree support systems can extend the life of your tree while maintaining its natural beauty &/or reduce the risk of mechanical failure.
A tree must be assessed carefully when deciding whether to install a supplemental support system, prune potentially hazardous limbs, reducing end-weight, or remove the entire tree. This is a job which requires a high degree of expertise and, if handled by a novice, can damage the tree permanently.
If a cable system is the best fit, Arapahoe Tree Surgeons, (using high quality materials), will install a horizontal limb support or a floating-eye cable network which provide supplemental support & restraint during elevated wind stress. Scaffold included in this system move freely or floats, while they defend against limb break-out. Because the cables are not rigid, the tree’s growth structure is not dependent on the cable for strength.
Annually, for a minimal charge, Arapahoe will send out a qualified cable technician to perform a thorough hardware inspection of your cabled tree(s) & advise you of their findings. If an adjustment is needed or if a defect is discovered in the materials, we will adjust &/or replace it at no charge to you.
