Yes, but our goal should be leave no trace -- and this means no visible damage to trees. Many public (and some private) campgrounds already have restrictions against tying anything to trees because of damage caused by careless campers. Any scarring or bark loss, even if it causes no long-term damage to the tree, should be considered unacceptable to an ethical hammocker.
