Wrapping anything AROUND a tree will girdle the outer layer, where the
water uptake takes place.

Although the idea of losing a bolt inside a tree is bad, in the long  
having a bolt in a tree won't hurt the tree.   Just the logger who  
wants to cut it down.

THE TAKEAWAY:   Trees are temporary attachments,  with lifetimes of
a few days to a few months to maybe a year or so.  Put in a long lag  
screw with
an eye on it, and back the sucker out a couple of turns, each year.
Antennas need maintenance, after all!

Don't gird the tree, unless you want to kill it.
