To me, those 2 reasons are enough to stick with the straps that I've already paid for as they were included with the camera.
A little lag bolt like that is not going to damage a tree.
I've been lagging lock boxes to trees for years and you can't even tell where I've had them in the past.
With a cordless drill and a jig, you could install this thing in a couple minutes.
