And speaking of anchors, make sure they won't move. We've seen more than one guy winch a tree down onto their Jeep, as well as rolling a rock or two off a cliff. Always use a tree-saver strap on a tree to protect the shrubbery, and mount it as low as possible for maximum strength. The higher a strap goes, the more leverage is induced to pull the tree over, while even little shrubs can hold a good amount of weight if the strap is placed low around the base.
