Thanks, Ralph. I'll look it up.
My moniker was bestowed on me for my proclivity for making things out of trash,
not for any knowledge of already-existing technology :-)

Careful, they will make you turn in your duct tape.... :]
Amsteel is a super rope that is ultra light weight, google it.
Or get some of the Mule tape that was offered here.
A couple of 20 foot lengths with loops tied or sewed into each end.
(use a water knot or a double double figure eight)
Wrap around trees as needed to get the spread needed then tie your
hammock to the straps or Amsteel with a hefty knot or 'biner. No
modification of the hammock.
While you are at it look up whoopie sling for an instantly infinitely
adjustable hanging system.
Hang tuff, hang tight
