In talking with Chris, KD4DTS on a local UHF repeater, he related an 
interesting tower installation:

Apparently an enterprising ham decided that it was easier and cheaper to 
dispense with all that fuss of pouring concrete for a base, guy anchors, 
guys, guy tensioning, and heck with all those middle sections of tower 
when there are perfectly good supports in his yard.

He mounted his vertical antenna by lashing a top section of Rohn 25 in a 
pine tree with wire ties.
