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
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.
