tree cabling & Bracing Service

If you have large trees on your property, you may observe uneven weight distribution among their limbs, with some growing larger and heavier than others. This imbalance increases the risk of heavier branches tearing away, particularly during storms, posing potential hazards. However, pruning or trimming these heavy branches could compromise the overall health of the tree. Alternatively, reinforcing branch unions through cabling and bracing offers a viable solution.

At Action Arborist of Savannah, we specialize in providing the necessary support to ensure the safety and health of your trees without causing harm. Our high-quality tree cabling services are trusted by the community in Savannah, Georgia, to safeguard their large trees effectively.

Tree Cabling Services

Cabling, bracing, rodding

These are three main approaches used to provide support to heavy tree branches that risk tearing away from the main plant.


Cabling entails the strategic use of wires to secure the heavier branch to the sturdier stem, ensuring optimal support, particularly during inclement weather conditions and strong winds. Precise placement of the cables at the correct height and angle is paramount to their effectiveness. It is important to acknowledge that periodic adjustments may be necessary as the branches continue to grow; however, this should be a sporadic procedure. Generally non-invasive, cabling may involve the use of bolts in certain cases to securely fasten the ropes around the tree.


Bracing represents another widely adopted method to promote optimal growth of trees, notwithstanding their weak joints. Our tree bracing services in Savannah are meticulously crafted to safeguard your trees from potential harm. This technique entails the installation of a wooden brace or bar beneath the heavy branch to offer additional support. Ideally suited for trees capable of supporting their branches, bracing serves as a proactive measure to mitigate risks.


Rodding serves as a complementary method to reinforce cabling in cases where additional support is deemed necessary. This process entails the drilling of holes into the branches, allowing for the insertion of rods through which the cables are secured. Unlike traditional cabling methods that loop around the tree, rodding involves threading the cables through the tree itself. While rodding is considered invasive, our arborists are adeptly trained in employing best practices to safeguard the health of your tree throughout the process, ensuring its vitality remains uncompromised.
