Are creaking noises bad? My daughter was on a pretty decent branch on a healthy-looking tree and I kept hearing these
creaking noises. Do new ropes creak? The branch wasn't even remotely moving under her weight. I had chosen a big branch I thought (and still think) could support us both in case I needed to rescue her.

Thanks

On a different tree, today, I don't think I heard any creaking, so I'm guessing it was the branch.
