(To be accurate into multiple decimal places you would have to figure the weight of rope, hook, and bottom block.) If you're standing still holding the line, you are equivalent to a heavy object as a tie off. Tree just a heavy object with roots. List Sponsor: Are you thinking about installing a tower this summer?
