Hi Gang,

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,
