Ditto that.  We have used them with the long-handled hammer which 
incorporates the nail.  Although cumbersome to carry, they are quick to use 
and get the tag out of reach of most potential tag-vandals!

Tom,

I swear by the arb tags, I have sites where they are still in place after 5 
years.

Thanks for the responded.

I have used the nailed version before but the no nail version was a lot
cheaper.

Hence my question.

I see that this seems to be a false economy

Morning Tom,
Difficult to get hold of the long lugged one's, and even with those, they
still don't stick well to rough barked trees such as Oak or Pine, and you
still end up nailing them on.

Not sure what is the best system, as the little round metal discs get
chewed by squirrels, but I've seen some of my old latshbacher tags still 
in
place 10 years later, and they are easy to apply for smooth barked trees,
and for a shorter person like me, using the hammer means I can get them on
the trunk at about 7ft or so.

You'll have to experiment and see what works best for you.

Regards
Bettina

I've stopped using mine Tom. There's no doubt they damage trees when
they're stuck in, and I've seen what I think can be called strip cankers
above and below the tags after quite short periods of time. I wouldn't
refuse to use them but I'd avoid it if I could. I've also seen them
forced
off the tree by callus wood growth or maybe just normal increment
increase.

Dear Collective

These have been mentioned on threads before but I was just wondering
whether the long lugged (nail free) versions were any good, and 
whether
there were any issues attaching them or getting them to stay on trees.

Any advice is welcomed.

Sincerely Tom
