    They're braces, designed to stop the tree falling over (or being uprooted in severe weather). – delinear Jan 22 '18 at 13:14
  • @delinear I second that. Please turn that into an answer and I'll promptly upvote. – Möoz Jan 23 '18 at 21:32

    @delinear [not to tell you how to suck eggs, but] You may want to point out that the reason is that the world is messed up and 'natural' things don't really grow very well, so the tree needs the props. – Möoz Jan 23 '18 at 21:33

That tree, along with most animals in the world of Blade Runner is dead and it's tied to the ground to prevent it from falling.

It's most likely an attempt by Sapper Morton to make it feel like a real farm by having a natural element which used to be pretty common in the old world.
