Answer: 
I would not advise anyone to install a zip line with out having an engineers input. The amount of stress put on the anchor is a combination of the weight of the wire, the wind resistance of the wire, and the dynamic stress from the supported weight. No layman can figure these accurately.

Good Afternoon, Pulling limbs of a tree is not one of our recommended uses. The 16 in. anchor is rated for up to 425 lbs. in pull force. That is really all I can comment on for this question. Kind Regards, emccollum

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect Solution Have an 8 ft blue spruce that was leaning significantly due to improper planting and wet soil. Inserted two ground anchors and used tie-down strapping to upright the tree and then add soil to the base. Quick and easy...tree is now upright and will leave the anchors in place until the roots take hold. The design of the spiral made it a snap to insert the strapping. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ground anchor Very good product. Like the feature allowing you to fold this flat when not using. June 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice I purchased 10 of these to put in my RV for various purposes. I have a screen that comes off my awning and at 20 feet long I use 4 of them for that alone. Also perfect for the screen tent. They didn't earn a 5 star for me because over the course of the summer of 2015, I had 3 of them break at the weld during the install. The price is also a bit steep for what you are getting. I have to admit though, they sure beat a tent stake. April 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worked better than I thought I bought these to use as tie-downs under a small cabin I am building. I was very surprised at how well they started to thread their way into the ground. After a few turns it got to hard to turn by hand so I inserted a 1/2" steel spike in ring for leverage and that got things going again. I hit rocks each time but kept up the pressure and got each anchor completely installed. They also seem very well made and I considered it a good deal all around. July 3, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect solution for basketball pole I used two of these anchors and a ratchet tie down strap to stabilize our new portable basketball hoop. It works perfectly and is so sturdy. We used this setup rather than filling the bb base so that we can easily move the system in the winter. I think it's sturdier now than if you only filled the base. October 5, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sound Product - Well worth the money I used this anchor with hi tensile wire in my vineyard to build new trellis's. They worked perfectly for this application. They are very sturdy, and come packaged nicely. They even have a protector on the sharp point at the end. A nice touch which you will appreciate once you see how sharp it is. Went into fairly dry soil, and in some cases, tree roots, with ease. The loop on the end is big enough to get a crow bar in, which is what I used to screw it into the ground. I will definitely purchase them again if I expand my vineyard. September 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by works perfect for what i needed.. I use this for my lawn mower so no one steels it and it's perfect for what I need it to do and the price was just right. February 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solidly constructed and hold extremely well in sandy soil. These were purchased to anchor a 14' trampoline. I researched several styles and manufacturers and these appeared to be the best. My assumption proved true. We live in SW Florida where the soil would pass for sandbox material in the North. These anchors were easy to start but really dug in the last 8", requiring an 18' breakover bar to cinch them flush with the ground in thick, St. Augustine grass. We can remove the straps, move the trampoline for mowing, and not worry about hitting the rings on these as they fold flush with the top plate below the grass. February 14, 2012
