On some hill fence I run a wire 1 inch above a below off the net then use lashing rods to connect the reson for this is heavy snow loads and u can open up the post spacing when required . Plus a rubbing wire in the centre of the 3 rd our 4 th square on the net gives the fence support at sheep hight plus help reduce lamb our sheep getting there heads stuck in fences that don't get seen very often. Then top wire as well.this is one off the reson am trying to talk customer to put up 8 wire fence because as I sayed if u want to do the job right u need 4 wires and the net.

I may be wrong but don't they put a strand on top of net around forestry's too, to take the loading of fallen trees?

We only get the snow loading, like what you can get, in a couple off places round here but you might have something in the 8/9 wires though, they haven't fenced most of NZ like that for no reason. They tried it this way many decades ago but I don't think they kept up with the maintenance of re-tensioning wire and if one wire snapped there was a  hole that nobody really knew how to fix, and net was easier and the rest is history.
