So is there any general consensus on the thickness of the pole and the depth of the bury. In my backyard I have a tree to 4x4 configuration. The 4x4 has been in the ground for over 17 years that I know about and I am going to replace it. My choices are 4x4, 4x6 or 6x6. I was planning on reinforcing it with concrete. I live in upstate NY with semi rocky soil.
Anyone care to recommend a size and depth of hole? I recently had a tree fall on my hammock while I was in it so I'm a little gun shy. In fact....that's why I'm replacing the current pole.
I do have to admit....the 6x6s look HUGE!
