Hi, I am a guy who lived in a tree on public land for a year. Ask me anything.
I hung a camouflaged platform about 100 feet off the ground on a hill on public land, away from trails and which is not visible from the ground. I put all my furniture into storage, moved out of my house and lived in the tree for about a year. Proof of the platform:

*edit to combine images to album and add a couple. * 2nd edit to add a new album with some other pics from when I was building it. Thanks for all the love reddit, I am going to bed now. I didn't think this would be so popular. Y'all have inspired me to go for a visit it and take it down. I will take and post some pictures of what it looks like after 4 years.
*3rd edit, My wife and I went to the tree today and I took down the platform. update and pictures
