thank you too bubba
an older thread here.
It just takes a little bit of effort to use that method, and can make all the difference in potential damage to the tree.
That's not to say that using webbing isn't sending a better statement to land managers and the like. But it's a point of education you might can use for your customers.

You could also consider what you are doing. The problem is load/unit area. Figure out the difference between the area of 1 in webbing and 7/64 amsteel and you will get the picture. In effect you are using piano wire to crush a very narrow band of cambium under the bark. That is what carries the sap. Maybe you are just impairing it and maybe you are closing it off until new growth covers it over. One cannot tell by looking at the out side bark. Either way it is not good for the tree.

Did some of us feel guilty concerning our approach to "educate" and remove their posts from his YouTube site?
bushcraftbasics, Welcome to Hammock Forums from Texas! It's a great place to learn and I've learned a lot from these folks.
But please know that this aggression isn't the norm here, and does not represent the forum or its overall membership.
You've said you'll give some attention to this issue, and that's all we can ask. Hopefully we can all put this little spat behind us and start a mutually beneficial relationship.
Welcome to Hammock Forums.
