    Cut it, don't cut it doesn't matter. Again I had a maple tree grow through the chainlink fencing of our dog kennel. The fence had gaps about 3 inches wide. The tree is now about a foot wide and still growing healthy. (Even though I have tried to kill it on multipl occasions with a machete, and I have even cutt he trunk on the inside of the kennel down twice and it continues to grow... I'll have to post pics.

    What are you guys talking about... it WILL adapt, the trunk will just "curve" around the rope, until it consumes it. DO NOT cut this rope! There is no bark behind the rope, and you would just open the most fragile "arteries" to all kinds of pathogens and bacteria. Do not cut it... My neighbors had a wire rope thing for their dog, and over 6 years the tree grew right around it and it was just fine...

    Youre wrong. Someone tied a rope round a tree in Bosnia when I was 4, buy the time I was 7 the rope completely cut into the trunk and the tree died.
    UI would suggest cutting this rope, better safe then sorry, this rpe will severly damage the tree if you leave it, it will cut into it as the tree grows and the tree will die.

    Starman... BLAAAHCK [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] -Holding in anger-

    Something really tells me you made up that story... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Here in california, many oak trees grow through fences, etc... They do just fine... A rope is NOT going to kill a tree... Look up "Bofante Gardens". It's about 50 miles from here. A man there did stuff like that to trees to make amazing growth patterns. They didnt die...

    Ropes dont "cut" into trees! The trees grow around them. In fact, Our tree had a rope around it. I'll borrow my dads camera and take a picture of it [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    It will either kill the tree or damage it. Even if it grows round the rope, the tree will loose vigour and its health wont be so good.

    So what if it is? better safe then sorry. Ppl said that they are immune from cancer, and they get cancer. Its unlikely, but it happens. Same witht the tree. It is not that high a chance that it will die or lookse vigour, it might happen, and then it will be too late to change anyhting. It will be a waste of a 20-25 year old tree.
