Trees are biologically designed to withstand wind and load. However, heavy foliage/fruit or a weather event may cause a split in a small tree.
Tree133 recently completed a small cabling project on a redbud that split in last winter's snow. As the tree is a sentimental favorite of the homeowner, she had tried a variety of DIY solutions with limited results before calling for help.
With careful reduction pruning to gently reshape the tree and installation of a cabling system, this tree will remain a focal point in her garden for many years.
