Tree cabling is a safe alternative to tree removal that may split or that needs extra support. Here are some reasons for cabling:
- The tree possesses at least one bifurcation, or crotch, that is shaped like a “V,” and supports a heavy limb.
- The tree has a long, thin branch that contributes to the tree’s shape and enchantment.
- The tree has a convergence of large limbs at a central location.
