Using trees as guy anchors has worked well for many (I never heard of a
failure). The recommended technique is to drill a hole straight through the
trunk and put a long eye bolt through it.
Here in El Paso, I have several palm trees in likely spots. I wonder if
anyone has experience in using palm trees as anchors. Are their root
systems extensive enough to serve?
Tnx es 73,
