Signs To Look For

Trees that have crossed limbs will have bare patches where bark has rubbed off. These limbs can be weak and prone to pest infestation. Limbs that are diseased or dead can be removed to allow the tree to focus nutrients on healthy limbs. We also offer canopy raising to allow for greater ground clearance without risking the health of the tree.

Fungal growths on leaves and many tree diseases can weaken trees, making them prone to toppling. If these trees are a liability, it may be wise to remove them entirely and plant a new tree if desired.

We also check for codominant stems and a “U” shaped tree crotch. If two stems are growing too close to one another, they can compete for space and invite poor growing conditions from lack of air flow. Or they can push each other apart, and weaken each other. In this case, the tree may be able to be braced to prevent damage and poor growth patterns.

Our tree experts use years of knowledge and superior equipment to reinforce trees and help prevent the need to remove valuable trees from your land.

When a tree has a split trunk or codominant stems, it may be wise to brace the tree with strong metal supports. Much like a bolt connecting the two pieces of the tree, these metal supports help the tree stay strong, and the tree is able to grow around the metal. However, if your tree species has trouble compartmentalizing wounds, another method may be preferable.


Cabling is a method of reinforcing a tree using wires in the canopy. Cabling can be done in a variety of ways depending on what kind of damage you need to prevent. Sturdy steel cables, or shock absorbing synthetic cables, are used to link one limb to another. These can either be rigged to prevent movement from wind, or allow controlled movement.


Pruning a tree removes weak, injured, and damaged tree limbs. It can also strategically shape and thin a canopy, allowing for more air flow and less wind resistance. These techniques reduce stress and wear and tear on your tree and the stems. Canopy thinning, directional pruning, and deadwooding all improve the look and health of your trees.
