I think it would even apply to airsoft. I mean, airsoft snipers don't make that loud of a "bang", so it can be easy to keep your spot in the tree hidden. I'm sure you would even have a slight advantage of the "higher ground" over the airsoft players on the ground. (You can see a bit farther for example).
I guess if you find a good tree to climb with all your gear, you may also want to put together an easy way down incase your position has been given away.
But hey, this is all from a 15 year old who hasn't been to an airsoft game yet, so correct me if I am wrong. Just my 2 cents.
Don't have experience climbing trees in the literal sense of the term but I'd say it'd be uncomfortable to sit in a tee for a longtime. Once you're found you're through though. I mean there's no possible way out unless you jump and shoulder role once you hit the woodland floor. I guess it couldbe useful as a back up position. I know some people would do t in paintball but most of the time they'd scoped out before they could do anything. I'll have to try it if I ever get a sniper rifle.
