"Hub and Spoke" Static Support System for Sugar Maple Tree

"Hub and Spoke" Static Support System for Sugar Maple Tree

We have posted before about using dynamic cabling to support smaller splits and/or limbs or branches that can use additional support. In the last year, we have been deploying a steel ring as a hub in static (metal/no stretch) cabling systems. This case study shows what we saw in a recent sugar maple and how we decided to install a hub with four legs (cables) to hold this large and valuable tree together.
