Anchor for winching

Recommended Posts

Has anybody ever attached an anchor plate to a customer's house, for the sole purpose of winching a tree? Is this a reasonable thing to do? Obviously with their permission. I would be removing it afterwards and plugging the drill holes.

Is there nowhere you can install a ground anchor? A series of wooden posts driven at 45 degrees back into the ground in a line in the direction of pull, with the top of the closest post tied to ground level in the next closest etc etc - set right that is a very secure method with no need to pull the wall of a customer’s house out!...
