Great Northern Tree Service provides services in Wisconsin's northern Lakeland area.

Trees can often be compromised by poor structure or weather-related damage. In these cases, cabling and bracing strategies are the only alternatives to removal.

Cabling is used in the upper canopy to provide support for limbs that would otherwise break off or split the leader to which they are attached.

Bracing is a more invasive procedure that is commonly used to fasten together splits in the trunk and larger wood.

Although tree support systems are designed to prolong the service life of the tree, it is important to understand that artificial support for a compromised tree cannot guarantee that the tree will not fail. At Great Northern Tree Service, we prefer to extend the service life of the tree as an alternative to removal, but only if it can be done safely.
