Hammock on palm tree

Want to put a hammock between a 10 ft and 14 ft palmetto palm trees. Bought an ENO hammock that will fit. I had the palms planted four months ago and they have grown tons of green and are doing great. I was wondering if my palm trees are established enough that I could set up the hammock or if I should wait longer?

When planting palms I've always heard the bracing should stay on for a minimum of 6 months and preferably a year. Just based on that I would say wait until next season before putting up the hammock.

I agree, it's not like palms have an extensive root ball anyway.
