Hammocks - Tree Protection
Hammock owners should strive to be good people, so they should consider the long-term health of the trees from which they hang their hammocks. Trees need to be protected and need to be strong and study if they are going to be used as support for hammocks. This applies for camping hammocks as well as standard yard or house hammocks.

You don't need to drill holes, fasten bolts or secure your hammock with metal fasteners that could hurt or kill the all important tree. A number of products are now available that are safe for you and the tree! Tree protectors actually wrap around the tree trunk and feature a loop that you can use to connect your hammock. The tree protectors also help to distribute the force so that it is not all on one part of the tree.

After making sure the tree is big and strong enough, you can use tree protectors that wrap around the trunk, giving you a secure surface to lay your hammock ropes. If the tree is not big enough, the hammock may pull the tree down which could damage the tree or injure the hammock occupant.

Always use the correct ropes to hang your hammock, and never stretch trees to make your hammock fit. When in doubt, consider using a hammock stand, or one tree and a hammock post. You can always use these items or find another location where the trees are a lot closer together.
