It's difficult to see, but my dipole is hanging in inverted-V configuration from the large limb near the top of the tree, about 30 feet up. The antenna runs roughly north-south, putting it's maximum lobes to the east and west.
By the way, to get my antenna up into trees I bring along a small ditty bag and a hank of 1.75mm Zing-It throw line. I put a rock in the ditty bag, tie the line to the bag, and baseball-throw it up and over the branch. The Zing-It line looks like large twine, but has a special coating that reduces friction and keeps it from snagging on the tree branch. It has a breaking strength of 400 pounds so it is more than enough to pull up a dipole without first having to pull up a thicker line. Zing-It is pricier than the mason line you can get at the hardware store (which I happily use on the ends of my dipole) but well worth the price in terms of durability and ease of getting an antenna up.
