When you’d like to prolong the life of a damaged tree or support a tree that is at risk, adding cables could be the answer. Properly installed cables redistribute structural stress and provide support in weakened areas of a tree. This mechanical support system reduces the potential for future damage to the tree and the likelihood of structural failure. Professional Portland tree cabling service can effectively add years to the life of a tree without seriously affecting the way it looks.

Rich’s Tree Service evaluates damaged trees to determine whether tree cabling is a viable solution to damaged trees or trees which are at risk. Customers in Portland have trusted owner and certified arborist Rich Gillum with their tree care for over 30 years.

What is Tree Cabling?

Tree cables are subject to the elements and normal movement of branches. Maintenance is minimal, but important, and should include annual inspections by a certified arborist. Additional support may become necessary as the tree grows, and visual inspections should also be made to ascertain whether the cable is performing as intended.
