Q: What are “Tree Spikes” and how do they hurt trees?

spike2A: Tree spikes, or climbing spurs, were designed to help tree climbers climb trees faster and easier. Unfortunately, tree spikes penetrate the tree’s living tissue and cause unnecessary damage to the tree. The most crucial living tissue of a tree is a small layer just beneath the bark. Tree spikes should never be used when doing any activity in a tree other then tree removal.
