Tree Support

Trees with weakened or damaged limbs pose a safety hazard. If you are restricted from pruning or removing those limbs, Distinctive Tree Care offers an alternative solution.

We use the latest in tree-support technology to bolster weak and poorly formed limbs.

  • Cabling: Two weak limbs are properly supported using forged eyebolts, washers and nuts with high-strength cable strung between them.
  • Bracing: Steel rods are used to provide support in hollow portions of the tree.
  • Guying: Newly transplanted small trees are supported with high-strength cables anchored firmly into the ground.
  • Tying: Young plants and multiple-stem shrubs susceptible to splitting are secured using special ties.

Distinctive Tree Care provides CT tree support services throughout the Greater Hartford area including South Windsor, Glastonbury, Tolland, Manchester, Vernon, Enfield, Windsor, Somers, Ellington, West Hartford, Farmington, Simsbury, Canton and beyond.

“Saving time and labor, patented DUCKBILLĀ® earth anchors work like toggle bolts in soil. They are driven into the ground with no holes, no digging, and minimal soil disturbance creating a safe and environmentally sensitive installation. With an upward pull, the anchor tendon rotates the DUCKBILL into a perpendicular anchor lock position in undisturbed soil resulting in superior holding capacities.”


“Cobra is a dynamic tree support system specially designed to be flexible and shock-absorbing. The system was conceived in response to functional insights and scientific research results. Based on these findings, the cobra system has been perfected for successful use, down to the smallest detail.

Developed with practical scientific support for practical use, cobra has contributed to preserving valuable trees inexpensively and safely.”


ArborTie is a material for staking and guying trees that is safe, soft, easy to use, and less expensive than traditional tree ties. The 900 lbs. (408 kg) break-strength ArborTie Green and 2,500 lbs. (1,134 kg) break-strength ArborTie White stand up to fierce winds while providing enough sway to help the tree develop trunk strength.
