When I wrap my hammock tree huggers on the tree, they are at usually about 6'+ off of the ground. If I connect my tarp ridgeline to the tree huggers close to the tree to minimize sagging once I am in the hammock, this will put the ridgeline too high above me in the hammock and limits my ability to hang the tarp for best protection under certain weather conditions. I believe that the tarp ridgeline would need to have its own tree protection (whatever that winds up being) apart from the ones being used for the hammock.
I am working on making a continuous tarp ridgeline that attaches to the tarp in a vee configuration. I believe that a sleeve-type protector of suitable material with the ridgeline running through it would be very versatile and effective for this set-up.
