I had a KT34XA at 55 ft with poplars and pines extending ten to twenty feet 
above it and all around it. Worked great. I increased the tower by another 
10 feet and it worked even better. I attribute the improvement to better 
take off angle because it was still below the crowns of the trees.

One problem I did have, is when a gustnado came through here about five 
years ago one of the taller pines bent over enough that the tip caught the 
reflector on the tribander and damaged it.

Put your antenna up and have fun!
