How about this one:-

(Personally, except for species with non-durable, decay-prone, timber I'd go for invasive every time. As Mark said, "Seems a bit pointless to install something that needs changing every 5 years" - especially as in 90% of cases it /won't/ be changed every 5 years)

These things need adjusted/and or inspected every few years, so someone's
going up there anyway. So it's just the cost of changing the sling over.
IT's a question of the compromises to the tree of an invasive system v
cost of changing a non-invasive one. Or, the value of the tree without
the compromises of invasive v the value without + cost of maintaining.
For an important valuable tree with significant cost implications of
failure, the cost of maintaining a non-invasive system could be good
value.

Subject: non-invasive cable bracing

While I'm at it,



What is the forums opinion on these things?



I had previously liked the idea for reinforcing old steel cables,
non-invasive but still with the "rigidity" of steel cable.



But as these looked to have been in place for a while I called the
supplier
to ask how long the webbing section should last.



Their reply was 5 years like all textile products and harnesses..



Seems a bit pointless to install something that needs changing every 5
years
but if that's their advice..
