    That's the thing...rope protectors protect the rope from cuts and abrasion. They don't spread the load to protect the rock/tree. Of course the rock doesn't need much protecting.

    That is true, an a climbing rope fills out the webbing all the way. Climbing ropes do plenty of damage to trees, I see plenty of damage from over use at popular areas.
