Trees that have splits or poor branch unions can be preserved with the installation of a supplemental support system.
This could include a through-bolt at the crotch*, and/or a cable between opposing branches in the upper crown.
We will design the support system best suited to your trees needs, and install it using high quality components.
Consider this as a viable alternative to removal. If the proper system is installed correctly, many years can be added to the life expectancy of your tree.
* Putting a bolt through a branch is always better than wrapping something around it. A tree has ways of dealing with an internal injury, but wrapping anything around a branch will constrict the flow of nutrients as it grows, and possibly kill it. Keep this in mind next time you hang a tire swing. First install an eye bolt, and tie the rope to that.
