We watched a guy throw a big hunting knife at his disc in a tree. It opened up halfway through its flight and stabbed into a branch and stuck, higher up than the disc was stuck. After that we left, because standing by a tree to help a stranger get a disc is not fun when a knife could fall on you. And another time we spotted a disc in a tree during an early morning round, knocked it down, and were surprised to see 2 discs fall to the ground. One was resting exactly on top of the other so you only saw one from the ground.

I usually use a rock or stick or whatever happens to be around. The only thing with this method, especially in park courses, is to please pick up everything you tossed at your disc and set it at the base of the tree. This way the fairways remain neat and clear, mowers don't get damaged, and others can use the same rocks and sticks to get their discs down if need be.

Agreed, but only use smooth rocks. I killed the rim of a Z disc when I ran out of smooth ammo.

Depends on height and the aggressivesness of the tree.

I have a softball in one pocket and a lacrosse ball in the other pocket of my bag for getting discs out of trees. I can usually have the disc down quicker than someone can get to the tree to climb it.

Climbing.

It's much faster,but dangerous too.

My buddy uses a slingshot from which he shoots marbles into the trees. He usually gets it down on the first try.

Softball. A tape measure would be a good idea.
