Tree Pruning / Bracing

This involves the installation by a tree surgeon of a bracing system that supports the tree’s structure and or arrests the failure of that structure. For example, Cable bracing or the more modern Cobra bracing.

Where a branch (or tree limb) is weakly attached to the main trunk or stem, a tree surgeon installs crown bracing is used to harness and extend the life of the tree.

Crown Bracing can also be used when a part of a tree is hanging over the property.

Root treatment

Soil ventilation ( the aeration of the soil around the rioting area)
Mulching ( placing well-composted mulch around the rioting area of the tree but DOES NOT COME IN CONTACT WITH THE TRUNK!!! )

Clearing the trunk/root collar.
It is important, that the point of transition between the trunk and the rooting area is kept clear and clean to prevent infection and other problems occurring.
