i assume your talking about the tree on a strat type guitar. The whole purpose of the tree is to keep the strings inline so I would just lead it alone if I were you.
Guitars:
PRS Custom 24
Gibson Les Paul 60's Tribute
85' MIJ Strat
97' Snakepit Les Paul
LP Traditional 1960 Zebra
MIJ Tele

Amps:
Silver Jubilee 2525
Peavey Ultra 112
Jet City JCA50H
66' Bassman
Pink Paisley Princeton RV
74' Vibro Champ

It also keeps tension on the strings, keeping up sustain... Take them off and you'd get like half the sustain


EDIT: I know, absent mind, don't worry...



I actually don't like to use the string trees... I don't do much bending and almost never use the tremolo, and to me at least it feels easier to press on the strings... Maybe it's a placebo effect, but as long as I don't know that, it'll stay true

Anyone else see the irony in smashing a guitar that says "peace and love" ?

String trees angle the string downwards over the nut, because on non angled peg heads the tuner post sits too high and if the tree wasnt there, the string would come out of its nut slot easily during playing.
