Absolutely Jim, and that is what many of the alternatives end up doing one 
way or another...

 

Did the other message come through with 2 other pics? I don’t seem to get all 
the messages here in Canada.

 

Because of the incredible damage that some of these thoughtless attachment 
schemes cause, drilling may well be the better option...

Long-term girdling of a stem is asking for trouble Philip.

Hi Julian,

thank you for the offer of an example - much appreciated.  If you want to 
send it off forum email me at info@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx.co.uk.

 

Yes, I agree that anything is better than drilling.  I will find out what the 
nets are to be used for and try and chat to the installers direct (who 
apparently have their own arb available for advice).

 

Many thanks to everyone else for your input so far.

 

all the best

Bettina

If this is only for safety nets which are not under permanent load, 

they can be done non-invasively since they need only take the 

occasional sideways pull. Also Cobra bracing systems are available 

that are easy to install and easy to adjust and can incorporate 
shock-absorbers.



Anything's bette than drilling.

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
