Here is another approach to "wires in the tree" that I happened across this 
Field Day.

I was riding my bicycle on Field Day Sunday morning and I came across the North 
Kitsap Amateur Radio Club gang.

After introductions and the such, I noticed that their wire antennas were way 
the heck up in some Douglas Firs.
Like 80-100 feet up. So I asked "How the heck did you get them so far up for 
Field Day?"

Answer: Potato Gun

Only took several shots from an experienced cannonier and they were in business 
with some very high wires.
Seems like there could be some home application here.
