Support brace for a long cherry branch

Pete and Eileen Carey of Tigard, Oregon love the Japanese Flowering Cherry tree in their backyard patio. The shade and flower display is superb. We have pruned the branch several times to reduce the weight in it. To prevent this long and heavy branch from failing we have here installed a brace system to support the limb. The brace was milled from a slab of quarter sawn Oregon White oak that had been salvaged from a necessary removal. It has been set here at a precise height to insure that the branch continues to develop good holding wood at the collar. What a pleasure to pay it forward!
