For about 6 feet on the tower end,   I slipped some big thick UV 
resistant water hose over the Philly and hose clamped it in place for 
additional abrasion resistance from tools, ropes, etc.   The hose clamps 
are at the top and go over the guy wraps.  It is left open at the bottom 
end so it will drain if moisture gets in.   At the bottom I have 
elevated guys only.   I cut back all vegitation around the elevated 
guys.   If a  canopy fire comes through,  it could reach the Philly much 
higher than 20 feet anyway so I couldn't see the point of EHS leaders 
with elevated guys.  In the event of a canopy fire I'll have a whole lot 
more to worry about than the tower!
