The Sea to Summit Tree Protectors are designed to prevent damage to trees when using a lightweight hammock suspension system.
Sea to Summit says:
Sea to Summit is a proud proponent of Leave No Trace, and our Tree Protectors will ensure that the trees you hang your hammock from will be there for many more generations. Thin straps can remove the outer layer of bark from trees, which can prevent the tree from supplying nutrients. 38mm webbing distributes the hammock load and reduces wear on the tree. High strength plated steel buckles quickly attach to the Suspension Straps as a simple and streamline system.
Chances are if you’re sleeping in a hammock in the middle of nowhere – you’re probably a big nature fan, which means you’ll want to protect the trees you’re using with the Hammock Tree Protector from Sea to Summit.
Made from 38mm webbing that will distribute the load, while protecting the health of the tree. To use, just loop it around the tree and connect it to the suspension straps. These protectors pack down small into an ultra-sil stuff sack for easy storage when you’re not using it.
