    Grow, Tree! Grow!

    I just planted the Cleveland Pear on the left today. It is 15' from my existing Maple. I hope to be hanging between them in a few years! Patience is a virtue, I guess.

    That's Patience on a whole new level. By the time those trees are big enough someone on HF will invent the hangless hammock.

    That would drive me a little crazy. Once I buy a home, I digging holes 15 feet apart, dropping a small telephone pole in each, shoring them up, then pouring concrete around them. The hanging will commence upon drying.

    I recommend putting 3 in a triangle so that you can always setup against the wind.

    Or better yet, buy a house wth trees in the yard already.

    The triangle is a great idea. I hope to have a place with real trees, but I have a backup plan no matter what.

    One of my "trees" is a telephone pole. I had the power company mov ethe lines when I fenced in my backyard and they left the pole. Awful nice of them.

    If I ever get the mind to I may grab a ladder and chain saw and cut it in half so that I can have another "tree" to make my triangle.

    If I where you, Id be planting a few more. Otherwise, you might wait 15 years, set up your hammock, and let your wife try it.... only for her to claim it. One more tree in a triangle might at least let you get three hangers up.
