Guying is a technique that few people think about. And yet, it can actually save trees. Let's take a look at what it's all about. Even if the word doesn't ring a bell, you may be familiar with a type of guying, perhaps without knowing it. Indeed, when a tree is staked with a stake, the time for its roots to take well, it is a guying. Even if in our case the devices are more sophisticated, the objective is the same: to offer support in situations where the balance of the plant, in its entirety or of one of its important sections, is compromised. Let us therefore review the circumstances in which the bracing technique is useful.
A notable difference between the conditions for tree development in the forest and in the city is the amount of sunlight that the trees receive. Since in the city each tree has much more space, it obviously gets more sunlight. As a result, city trees also grow faster. It can happen that things don't work out as they should. Indeed, branches may have grown longer on one side, to the point of risking the specimen to fall, among other possibilities. Any misalignment could eventually benefit from bracing, which can sometimes be combined with pruning.
