ok from what I have read the best size tree to strap a hammock to is one
4-6" diameter. I realize you can use larger trees but is there a limit? I am thinking about the Smokies in particular where some trees are 24"+ diameter how would you go about strapping to them esp if you're not planning on one that big. How much strapping do you have on each end of your hammock? Do you carry extra just in case?

Has anyone on here hammocked in the Smokies before?
