Tree bracing services in Moray and Aberdeenshire

Tree Bracing

Are you concerned about the safety of a tree, but don’t want to see it felled? Tree bracing could be an option for you.

Bracing is a specialist service Epic Tree Care offers in Moray, Banffshire and Aberdeenshire. Most tree surgeons in northeast Scotland don’t advertise this service.

Using artificial materials to strengthen weak points in a tree, tree bracing reduces the risk or consequence of tree failure. This is important when trees are close to houses, greenhouses, gardens, roads, garages and driveways.

Tree bracing comes in various forms. Rigid bracing uses steel bolts to strengthen a tree at its weak point. For example, rigid bracing can be used to strengthen two stems that risk splitting apart.  Rigid bracing is only suitable for specific trees and defects. Epic Tree Care can provide expert advice on whether it is suitable for your tree. We can also install rigid bracing to the correct standard.

Flexible bracing is the other, more common form of bracing. Using specially designed ropes and attachments to support weak tree branches and stems. Flexible bracing must be installed at the correct point above a tree’s weak point. Epic Tree Care can advise on whether flexible bracing is appropriate, and install it in the correct way by a qualified tree surgeon.

Flexible bracing can be installed either as a tethering system or a limiting system. Tethering systems are designed to catch a branch in the event of failure. So it doesn’t cause damage to houses, greenhouses, gardens, driveways etc. Therefore limiting systems are designed to reduce the movement of a weak branch or stem, reducing the chance of it splitting.

Epic Tree Care install flexible bracing to the correct tension. Making sure some movement is still allowed, to help the tree’s natural processes. Trees naturally respond to movement by laying down stronger wood. Our tree experts consider this when installing any tree bracing.

When installing any bracing, Epic Tree Care will carefully assess your tree and the surrounding area. We will select the right type of bracing and install it to the correct standard.

Our Tree related services help with all aspects of your tree maintenance including tree pruning and tree stump removal.

Carefully assessed the work to be done and promptly quoted. Agreed dates for the work to be done and came when they said. Carried out the work exactly as agreed. Team was organised and hard working. Tidied up well once the work was completed. I was particularly impressed with the stump removal and the care taken to make sure I was happy with the finished shape of the trimmed trees. Cost seemed high until I saw how many workers were in the team, what work was actually involved, how much wood had to be disposed of and the amount of equipment involved. I was completely satisfied with the work done and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.
