We just moved into an upstairs apartment and our downstairs neighbour asked me to help her hang her rope hammock in the yard.
The hammock is the type with wood spreader bars on both ends and some large heavy chains and S-hooks on the end. One end used to be attached to a large screw in the tree that is still there and the other end was attached to a pole in the ground that had since fallen over due to the weight. The closest tree is a mature birch on one side but is 30' away and I am wondering what is the best way to hang this rope hammock?
The neighbour really likes her rope hammock (plus she has pillows and accessories for it). Do I still make a ridgeline for this? I used the Iphone hang-app and was given a number about 11' off the ground if I'm using both trees for the final hang to be 2' off the ground. Am I doing the math right?
Thanks in advance for any help
