Additional perspective: my neighbor sunk a pressure-treated 4×4 at 45 into concrete to complete his hammock stand (other end was an eyebolt in a tree). A few little kids horsing around in the hammock caused the 4x to break at a knot. I’m not an engineer but I believe that the posts above about the power of triangular frame are right on. And whatever your final dimension I’d make it by laminating 2x stock to control for what happened to the bonehead across the street.
