ALCON....(All Concerned), which should be everone on this point
Please do not start eliminating the tree saver straps.... they are necessary to prevent tree damage, especially on the thin line spectra HH models....
This is a good way to exaccerbate the "nothing tied to the trees" Issues of some state and local parks.
Substitute polyester straps if necessary to eliminate excessive stretch..... But realistically these stretch only an inch or so.... Just learn to deal with it.... stretch is easily planned and compensated.
