My approach to using trees is to get a line over a fork in a tree branch 
that is high (use slingshot, bow and arrow, or baseball and fish line), 
secure line to dipole end, pull other end down around trunk of tree and tie 
off on low limb with desired tightness.  The desired tightness is one that 
leaves enough slack to accomodate branch movement in the wind.  I have used 
this method in Maryland and Oregon, and Oregon does have high winds. After 
three or four years the line may wear out where it goes over the fork, but 
you might employ preventitative maintenance, or after three years  it's time 
for a new and different antenna anyway.
