> Any rope or tying string you use to tie trees will eventually rub into the bark and the bark will eventually grow around it.  We use 3/4" water hose that we cut to twice the diameter of the tree, run the rope through the hose and tie it off.  If you need a larger diameter hose, most hardware stores will carry 1" rubber hose.

That sounds like a good idea. I'll check it out.
