You never want to wrap a winch cable around a tree, as it can “ring” the tree and kill it. Fortunately the sensitive souls at Bubba Rope recently introduced their Treehugger, a 6-foot-long, 3-inch-wide strap that is rated for 58,000 pounds and useful around trees, rocks, or rollcages. Always place the tree-saver strap as low to the ground as possible to limit the leverage on the tree.
