I assume this is LV, right? Are your wire leads longer than 35'? Is this fixture spliced to homerun wire somwhere up the tree trunk? I'm just trying to picture how this is connected 30' or higher above ground.

Rent a "Porta Bucket"; unless you know what you are doing, have the right equipment, saddle, spikes, rigging lines, etc. don't do it.
