Tiebolting & Cabling
 
Have you ever removed a tree from your yard after a strong wind caused it to split? We get many calls from homeowners who assume that their split tree is beyond repair and will have to be removed. However, there have been many times where we have been able to save a split tree by "putting it back together", using a two-part process called tiebolting & cabling.

View the photos on the right to see how we fixed a split tree using tiebolting & cabling:

  • Figure A:
    We install a 5/8” threaded rod through a split tree trunk.
     
  • Figure B:
    With the help of the threaded rod, we pull the split tree back together. This rod stays in the tree to hold it together and keep it from splitting further.
     
  • Figure C:
    Cables are then installed higher up, from limb to limb, to provide additional support. Many people never notice the cables once they are installed (view an example photo in Figure C).

     

Unsure if your split tree can be saved?
