EMS pre sown webbing loops for anchor points on trees

EMS sells some presown webbing, I was wondering if these would be sutable to use in anchor construction?

Which method would be best to secure them... running one end of the loop around a tree, then pass it THROUGH the other end and pulling it tight and attaching a biner to it....

OR placing the loop around the tree, and putting a biner through both ends of the loop?

Or none of the above lol


*meaning for an expedient use say off a substantial piece of building construction or tree etc not for recreational climbing where youd have to time make something redundant and more secure*

Thanks for the reply, just wanted to throw it out there to see if one way was better for any particular reason.

Place a loop around the tree, bring the ends together, tie an over-hand knot in the two ends together, then put a pair of biners through the ends

With pre-sown webbing and a good-sized tree, you probably don't need redundancy, but I find it is a good habit to maintain.

I thought he meant to use the sling as one leg of the anchor not a single sling girth hitched around a tree. One BFT but you still need two slings or a knot in a doubled up sling.
