Trees are susceptible to various external forces including wind.  Additionally, trees may develop internal defects that may place their structural integrity into question.  The Cobra tree support system helps to alleviate the concerns of potential branch failure which often results in damage to vehicles, buildings, or even endangering pedestrians.

While offering support to potentially hazardous tree branches, the Cobra system allows for natural movement, thereby continuing to allow the tree to grow and respond to wind and gravitational forces.

The black cobra hollow rope is made up of polypropylene monofilaments and is the rope fiber that is best suited for a long-term use in trees. The degradation of strength is less than 2 % per year and allows a service life of 12 years of the cobra crown bracing system.  The Cobra system is available for purchase in our catalogue or contact us today for a quotation.
