Buy and study the ON4UN book from ARRL. There are many other questions 
you need to answer. For example, why that particular antenna? It's omni, 
more or less. With multiple high trees, you would be much better off 
with two dipoles at right angles that you can switch between, because 
their horizontal directivity gives you gain, and they're easy to feed 
with coax.

Want to work 80 and 40? Build those dipoles as fans. Also easy to do. 
See the applications notes on my website for construction ideas for 
antennas for limited space. There is both a text pdf file and a Power 
Point pdf. k9yc.com/publish.htm
