That's a tough one to give back but you're doing the right thing.

I carry a couple golf balls but a lot of the time I just shack the tree or throw another disc. Honestly I don't tend to get disc stuck in trees that much, they tend to just fall out. Maybe the tree don't like my plastic.

Normally a baseball, if it's high enough we'll climb the tree and then throw a baseball at it.

My buddy has a telescoping fishing pole he got off eBay. It is about 15 ft when fully extended. It weighs almost nothing and fits in his grip bag.

He has knocked at least 30 discs down. It is the goods

I give a dollar to the first kid to get it out of the tree. It also works when you throw the disc into shallow water hazards like the ones we have in Phoenix.

Golf ball. Have used a tape measure though. I always have one in the truck. A good one will reach 15-20 feet if you go straight up. Farther if you can rest it on a lower limb. If all else fails I can climb like an old fat monkey.

I voted for Rock but in Am Nats this year my 70 Y/o Dad climbed 2 trees for me :-) In Bowling Green, in the finals, I got 2 circle 3's because of the 2-m rule and trees so close to the baskets. Both of them I climbed for. Climb tree is a good choice but not available.
