When I was at school we were told the Xylem and phloem vessels just under the bark transported the water and nutrients up and down the plant, puncturing these vessels will IMO cause the tree more stress and potential damage than strapping a target around it for a couple of hours during a competition.

I take my hat off to you sir, your a strong boy if can crush the trunk of a 200 year old Oak with a ratchet strap.

Also have a word with forestry worker about the relationship with bits of steel (screws and nails) and chainsaw blades!
He who never made a mistake never learned!
He who never missed never shot!
