I found used Rohn 45 locally for less than $100 per 10' section.

Cranes must be a lot cheaper where you live.  Based on what friends have 
spent locally on crane service, two trips up the tree will cost more than 
the tower.  Plus, I'm a do-it-yourself kind of guy.  Not because I'm cheap. 
Anyone who knows me would never accuse me of that.  I simply find 
satisfaction in knowing how and being able to do things myself.  I must 
admit though, that it is getting easier to delegate tasks to others as I get 
older :)
