My Beverages all go through thick woods. I use bright orange surveyors' 
tape and a hand-bearing marine compass to mark the route before 
stringing the wire. The tape is placed around trees every 50 feet or 
less and it is easy to keep the line is straight. The surveyors' tape is 
available from most home-supply stores in the U.S. This stuff even shows 
up when there is snow on the ground.
