If you have read much of anything that I have written over the last 30 years, you know that I do not like to say “don’t do that,” but rather, “if you do that, then this will be the result,” or “you must contend with such and such.” This same logic applies to rigging from trees, you can do it, but you must understand the forces and how to properly deal with them.
