    "Rope" tree hugger

    To avoid a thread hijack elsewhere, how is a rope tree hugger any different than just rope?

    Sticks (or something of the sort) are placed vertically between the rope 'hugger' and the tree, preventing any cutting or chafing of the bark.

    Here's an older thread about them, with some good discussion (and pics).
    I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt. - Cormac McCarthy

    Arrow Sticks...

    Using dirty sticks found on the forest floor can subject trees to the risk of infection and/or infestation.

    If one wishes to avoid using straps of at least 1" width, with at least one full wrap around each tree, then one should bring clean sticks treated to resist infection and/or infestation.
