At Harvest Tree Services Ltd. we provide both tree cabling and tree pinning services in Winnipeg. When possible, and feasible, we are able to save a structurally compromised tree, or avert the possible failure of a tree. Structural issues sometimes reveal themselves but do not necessitate the removal of the tree; each case is assessed and determinations are made from there, and safety is of primary concern. In some instances, both pinning and cabling are used together.
Pinning is a process whereby threaded high-tensile strength steel rods are installed in specific areas to strengthen and affect a repair, similar to placing a pin in a bone. Over time, the pin is enveloped by the tree and is stronger than the original branch attachment.
Cabling involves installing cables between various stems to avert flexion and protect against possible future stem failure.
