    covering suspension rope with webbing

    Will covering suspension rope with tubular webbing prevent tree damage?

    part of what 1" or wider webbing does is distribute the force over the whole width of the webbing. A 4mm line inside of tubular webbing is exterting the same force in the same focused area 4mm wide as it would without, i.e. it doesn't help with what is I think the most important protective role of the webbing.
