Tree Bracing in Bristol


What is tree bracing?

If a tree is structurally weak or at risk of failure then tree bracing can be an effective way of enforcing it and making sure it doesn’t collapse and damage property, or worse, hurt somebody walking nearby.

Once a thorough assessment of the tree’s condition has been completed, our arborists will decide on the best bracing method for the tree. As well as considering the tree’s condition, our team will also consider the type of tree and its size, before deciding on the best option.

What are the different tree bracing methods?

There are a variety of tree bracing methods and we have detailed those that we use most regularly below. If you would like to discuss any of these in more detail or find out more information, please get in touch with our team.


By securing cables high up in the canopy, our tree surgeons will redistribute the weight of the tree with the aim of reducing the stress on the weak branches.

Bracing rods

These are rigid metal metal bars inserted through the trunk or weak branches of a tree to give it more support. They are drilled into the tree to give it sufficient strength and support.

‘Very pleased with the service and would definitely recommend.
Very polite and tidy workers. They turned up on time and just got on with the job. Seem to have a good knowledge about how trees grow ie. cutting back to a growing point, and offered good advice on future maintenance. I’d definitely use again.’
Christopher Hibberd
