What are they saying about Able Tree?
We recently moved into a new home with some heavily damaged trees and some large dead trees. I was referred to John at Able Tree Service and set up an appointment. He did a very thorough review of my property and provided me with an action plan to get things in good order while improving the look of our yard. John and his crew are first class professionals. From strategically planning to the minute details of clean up, they don't take any short cuts.
After removing 9 trees and pruning several others, I assumed I would have a big clean up on my hands once they left. I was pleasantly surprised that my property is actually cleaner now than it was before. John also has first class equipment and from the moment they pulled into my driveway I knew I chose the right company. Thank you again to John and his fantastic crew, I would recommend him to family, friends and even my boss!--Ruel from Pickering via HomeStars

Cabling and Bracing
Cabling and bracing are the two most common forms of structural support for trees. They involve installing flexible cables or rigid rods to reduce the chances of failure of defective unions. Cables are installed high in the tree, at least 2/3 the distance from the defect to the crown. Rods are installed much lower, just above and/or below the defect.
REDUCE hazard potential, PREVENT failure, RESTORE your tree!
