I figure this is the easiest place to ask.... I got some good 1/2" polyester winch line from Baileys and need to pull a few trees against their natural lean this weekend. Nothing critical as there are no buildings, I just don't want them to hang up and damage other good trees when I have a good place to put them, if I can pull them over a bit. I will hook the rope to the skidding winch and use a snatch block, but all I know for knots are the classic granny knot. I'm sure there is something that is suited for making a loop to hook to the winch and then around the tree, so I'm asking what that would be... I can look them up on the animated knots website, just looking for which one(s) make sense.
Yeah, I'm probably over thinking this...but it never hurts to ask in my book...
