This accessory is great for putting around your trees, this does two things. Firstly it helps protect the tree's from unnecessary damage. You should be selective about the trees you use and avoid all soft barked trees. Secondly it helps protect your slackline from unnecessary damage...... its a win win. Comes as a pair of felt rolls each, 16cm wide, 5mm thick and 100cm long, with Velcro sewn ends for fast attachment. For wider and thicker tree wear check out Gibbon Tree Wear XL.
Tree protection when slacklining
The following has to be considered when slacklining with trees as anchors:
Tree diameter of at least 30 cm at anchor point, increase the diameter with higher tensions
Tree protection under the tree sling, in order to prevent the sling of abrading the bark and distributing the pressure amoung the uneven surface of the tree.
-> Check out our tree protection consumer report
Treeslings which are at least 5 cm wide (Slings should be spread out behind the tree to increase surface area)
We also recommend you proactively approach slackliners in your community about these issues – this helps the entire community!
