Tree trunk protectors are often overlooked when most people select their recovery gear. The shear name alone makes you think that these do nothing more than protect the tree, so why spend your hard earned money to protect a tree when you can get more gear right? Wrong.
Tree trunk protectors provide a large, sturdy recovery point when self-recovering. The straps cover more surface area than just the winching wire while featuring strong webbing that adds strength to your pull. That tree is going to be under plenty of stress when you put your winch wire and snatch block to it, as the wire digs into the tree you can get a snag or even snap your wire.

End loops are reinforced with forged steel ring connectors and then coated with Warn’s E-coating for longevity and reliability. Depending on your weight, protectors are available at 7,200lbs, 14,400lbs and 30,000lbs ratings.
