No, they aren't tied. I made my own sort of crossties (fifteen/twenty foot ropes tied up high in the tree so that they hang down and have a good bit of give with slim chains attached to the ends that I can clip to my horses halters... price, about 30 dollars... the ropes/chains will break if enough pressure is put on them) about two years ago, but the tree was struck by lightening and half of it had to be cut down, so the crossties had to be moved, and now I just clip my horses to one chain (besides Dakota.. he has to be clipped to all three when it comes to bathtime because he wiggles around so much, lol)... and they're fine.
