I might have an opportunity to meet with my state representative, Mike Horner in a few weeks. I plan on making an appointment to talk to him. But before I do, I want to be prepared. Does anyone know of any study or paper from any local, state, or federal agency, or university, foundation, etc that shows the absence of or minimal impact on trees from hammocking? I can make the argument that hammocking leaves little to no impact on the ground and virtually no damage to the trees' bark, but I would like some sort of proof or evidence to backup my claims. All I can find on the internet are stories on how some environmental scientist or group is going to make a study, but no actual study.
