The use of hammocks has increased tremendously over the last few years with many camping enthusiasts using hammocks while hiking or trailing around the world. If you’re assembling a hammock in your backyard, the best thing to do is screw in a bolt on each tree. Ropes can cause friction, which can sometimes lead “rope scar” or weaken the bark, making the tree more susceptible to disease.
The screw can be drilled into the tree making it easy to hang the hammock from one tree to another. It is mildly steel and zinc coated which will prevent it from corrosion and rust.
