Nails – Impaling A Tree

Q: Can I mount a flag pole onto a six inch tree trunk? Should I use a certain kind of nail?

A: I don’t like nailing into a trunk but if you feel you have to do it, use aluminum gutter spikes. Clip to shorten them if needed. They do about the same damage to the tree as steel nails would but they aren’t as dangerous to chain saw operators.
