Has anyone mounted vertical strips to large tree trunks? We have some 50-70 feet tall trees in our front yard and I'm looking at viability of mounting quite a few vertical strips.

I'm going for a mega tree type that is a column rather than a tree. Also more resistant to wind and storms. I figure I'm not moving the trees, so might use them.

My thoughts currently are this:

1 - Mega tree type plastic strips with square pixels. Blocks the same size as the pixels for spacing with nylon webbing on the back. Cinch around the tree in a few locations. Has advantage of roll up storage.

2 - Aluminum u channel or square tube, with strip stuck to it. Much simpler and could cantilever them higher without having to go up too high with mid and bottom straps. Downside is viewing angle and overall fragility of strips.

I also considered going wider than the tree, but it would block more of the house than the tree already does, so decided that doesn't make sense.
