A tree cable consists of a length of extra high strength steel attached between branches with bolts in the upper crown of a tree. They are typically installed on multi-stemmed trees or when there is a large, out-stretched limb. Cables are intended to limit the movement of the supported branches so they are less likely to fail during extreme weather. As trees are continually exposed to the elements, cables are an ideal solution to help high-value or large trees or those close to structures withstand the high winds of winter.
