When up the the tree, you might see farther, but not necesseraly in the direction you need to. When the tree is thick, you can't really see well, or shoot well generally.

Not to mention that a ghillie suit that get entangled 4m up in branches can get you seriously hurt. Especially when 6+ guys are lighting you up with full auto fire at 400fps and you can't yell "HIT" because you are too busy saving your ass from a fall with one hand, while holding your 2000$ rifle with the other because your sling is also antangled.

It's in all sniper related books: Never go up trees with the intention of using them as a shooting post.
