You could do as W0AIH does at "the farm".

He has several of these high telephone poles (wooden).  His method is
to jam a Rohn 25 top ("pointy") section down onto the top of the
pole.  This allows the mounting of a standard ham rotator.

The telephone pole is tapered at the top to allow a very tight fit.
>From the ground, I have not noticed any other fasteners.
