A cutting wheel on a cordless drill will cut the nuts off anything, or dive in to also cut the cable out, depending on how sunk the cable is into the bark, it could be difficult to remove the cable completely.

I saw Jason maybe a month ago and he is no longer guiding. The need for real money has won him over.

ok here is what he said
"I need a picture, but the tree will form meristematic tissue (cambium) around the cable. Technically the tree is being strangled, but some species are resilient. If they want to get it out, they will need bolt cutters, hammer, and chisel

The can also just cut a piece out and the links and let the tree compartmentalize the rest of the cable "

so.. it sounds like maybe just taking the bit with the rings out would be easiest? then let the tree absorb the rest.

That is true Jake..there are other trees here and there at the base with remnants of slings growing out of them...most likely the result of a girdled sling that the tree was able to grow around successfully. Still, there is no reason for it to be there and it will probably kill the thing in all liklelihood.

Yea, if you (or whoever) can get all of it that would be the best. but it seems like if you at least remove the constriction of it so that when it gets wider the cable will be able to move with it then it would be ok.
