Safe. Smart. Secure.
Sometimes, a tree needs a little help to look its best. At Schnell Tree Service LLC, we develop comprehensive solutions to ensure they do. We use high-strength braces and cables to secure tree limbs and prevent them from falling, helping preserve trees so they can grow safely.

Strong winds, stormy weather, and countless other hazards can cause significant damage to trees, impairing their structural strength and risking their overall health. Our services work to prevent such issues from happening in the first place. We give your trees a little extra strength so you can have peace of mind knowing they'll stand strong. For tree cabling that's safe, smart, and secure, we're the team you can count on.

Protect Your Trees with Professional Cabling
Don't go out on a limb when your tree's health is at risk. Our expert cabling and bracing solutions are here to protect your trees and help them grow without risk of toppling. Come what may, with our services, your trees will stand the test of time.
Cabling and bracing are effective preventative measures that can save you time and money on tree care. In the long run, they are the desirable and affordable option for unsafe trees, especially compared to other interventions like tree removal. Topping a tree—cutting off its crown—can stop it from toppling. But it leaves it looking bare and can have long-term effects on its overall health. Better to invest in our cabling and bracing services to play it safe. That way, your trees can continue to grow without cause for concern.
Benefits of tree cabling and bracing include:
- Less risk of tree falls
- Improved safety
- Less chance of damage
- Protection against storms, bad weather, and strong winds
- Stronger, healthier trees
Why brace / cable a tree?
First, bracing and cabling are two different methods which have the same goal; to strengthen a weakened tree. The main difference is that bracing uses steel rods where cabling instead uses steel cable. Choosing between bracing and cabling depends on the specific situation and the skill level of the professional you have hired.
The reason for the development of this practice is because older trees or weakened trees need our help to continue to survive and look their best. When trees grow, certain branches may grow larger and faster than others. Without bracing or cabling these branches, they will break off in a heavy wind. If a large branch breaks off from the tree it could cause extensive property damage, create an open wound in the tree for insects and disease to enter, and/or cause severe damage to the trees structure, leading to the end of the tree.
There are also species of trees which are very prone to breaking, such as the box elder or silver maple. These trees will almost always require bracing or cabling as high winds will break these massive but frail trees.
Signs to look for to see if your tree may require bracing/cabling
There are many factors which a trained arborist looks for when inspecting the safety of a tree. Here are a few things for you to look for to see if you need to contact an arborist:
V Crotch connection: a v crotch connection is when a branch is connected to the trunk by a narrow angle. The connection forms a V shape and is structurally a very poor way for a branch to grow.
Proximity to your home: if there are big branches that are looming near your home then it may be good to have those braced or cabled as a preventative measure.
Recently lost a lead branch: if a tree has lost one of its main branches in a storm then you may need to cable some of the remaining branches. Without the protection of the lead branch other branches may be in jeopardy come the next storm.
