> For tree trunk labels, consider screwing the tags to the tree rather than using nails.  That way, someone can go round every couple of years and unscrew the screws a couple of turns.  That keeps the tag on the
surface of the trunk and eliminates the unsightly bending and bulging and bark damage that occurs when a tree tries to "eat" its tag.<
