      I really like the simplicity of Ed's "4 wrap" knot. So easy to tie!

      However, sometimes the tree I need to tie to is too large for sufficient
      wraps.

      What to do? I didn't want to tie a knot that would be impossible to
      untie in the morning.

      So I used the hammock webbing to tie one loose overhand knot around the
      tree and finished
      it off with figure 8 wraps a la Hennessey. Worked perfectly, plus it
      allowed me to adjust
      the height of the hammock on the tree.
