2.5cm!  That’s an inch in old money.  Are they kidding?

There are plenty of belt or strap type arrangements for “non-invasive” 
bracing applications.  

Surely one of those could be used, along with regular inspection/replacement 
regimes, couldn’t it?

Regards,

Bill

Hello all,
a client of mine would like to have an adventure course built, including
nets stretched between trees.

It is proposed that a 2.5cm diameter hole will be drilled through the
trunks for an eye bolt to which the nets will be attached.

The local tree officer has expressed concerns about the drilling, and asked
if there is an alternative way of doing things.

Has anyone else had experience of this sort of thing, and are there viable
alternatives to drilling through the trees?

Many thanks as always,
regards
Bettina
