Treading lightly and protecting our natural resources when out on the trail is imperative to ensure that future generations continue to have access to public land that is open for recreational off-roading. AEV’s Tree Strap allows a winch cable to be safely anchored to tree’s trunk when recovering a stuck vehicle, without causing any permanent damage. Without using a Tree Strap, the steel cable or synthetic winch rope will heavily gouge a tree’s bark under the extreme forces that winching can generate—damage that can ultimately kill the tree. Using a Tree Strap displaces all that energy and preserves the tree.

The AEV Tree Strap is made of 3-inch wide polyester webbing with reinforced eyelets and safety rated to a Minimum Breaking Strength (MBS) of 24,000 lbs. with a Working Load Limit (WLL) of 6,000 lbs. AEV is dedicated to bringing more safety and continuity to the recovery gear that 4WD enthusiasts around the world rely on to get out of these potentially hazardous or life threatening situations and this is the only Tree Strap in the aftermarket that complies with industrial rigging standards. To further maximize the service life of this Tree Strap, a unique edge guard was added for improved protection against cuts and abrasion.

Please Note: Minimum Breaking Strength (MBS) is the minimum force necessary to cause a recovery device to break or fail. Working Load Limit (WLL) is the recommended maximum force a recovery device is intended to safely support, when the force is applied in-line and through the centerline of the device. The WLL is calculated by dividing the Minimum Breaking Strength (MBS) by a safety factor that is generally around 4-to-1. For example, the AEV Snatch Block has an MBS of 52,000 LBS, so when divided by a safety factory of 4-to-1, the WLL becomes 13,000 LBS.

Product FAQs

What is the purpose of a Tree Strap?

A tree strap is designed to protect the trunk when a tree is being used as a winch anchor for vehicle recovery. Wrapping a steel winch cable or synthetic rope is both dangerous to the operator and harmful to the tree.

What is the difference between a static and kinetic strap?

A static strap does not stretch. Common examples of a static straps are tree straps or winch extension straps, which are mostly used as anchoring straps. Kinetic straps will stretch - upwards of 20%. The kinetic energy released by the elasticity of the strap significantly aides in recovering a vehicle that is buried in deep mud, sand or snow.

Is the AEV Tree Strap a kinetic or static strap?

The AEV Tree Strap is a static strap, as it does not need to stretch when being used as a winch line anchor.

What is the difference between Minimum Breaking Strength (MBS) and Working Load Limit (WLL)?

Minimum Breaking Strength (MBS) is the minimum force necessary to cause a recovery device to break or fail. Working Load Limit (WLL) is the recommended maximum force a recovery device is intended to safely support, when the force is applied in-line and through the centerline of the device. The WLL is calculated by dividing the Minimum Breaking Strength (MBS) by a safety factor that is generally around 4-to-1. For example, the AEV Snatch Block has an MBS of 52,000 LBS, so when divided by a safety factory of 4-to-1, the WLL becomes 13,000 LBS

Where are these straps manufactured?

These straps are manufactured overseas by a US-based company that specializes in industrial rigging equipment. All design, engineering and testing has been done stateside.
