    That's not a tree anymore, it is a used to be tree.

    Does that have a stob that sticks into the ground to hold it up, or does it just sit flat with the plate on the ground?

    The strap on the camera doesn't fasten good around the wooden post and the creek nearby got out and washed away a post or 2!

    I would weld a few RR spikes on the bottom to fasten it to the ground so an animal or wind doesnt knock it over, also the open top will allow water to fill the square tube and freeze causing it to split, not critical for safety or strength but damaging the same., I have alot of wind through my pastures that would topple anything not tied down good...but just use a bungee cord to hold it to any post, pole or tree would be much easier and stable..

    You can always add one later when you get tired of having to stand it back up each time it get's knocked over. A 3/8" steel rod about a foot long with a point ground on one end would be enough. Set the point on the ground & step on the plate to shove it in.

    As Opus said, it would be better with a plate over it to keep the frost and rain off of it. You may not get the pictures you need with rain or frost over the lens. Hopefully there is no live stock in the pasture. Around here, it wouldn't stay up any time at all as all places have live stock.

    And not the first one of them will make the first attempt to pick up what ever they may knock over, intentional or not.

    There is no escaping the frost in some places.

    If no trees I normally just stick a shovel in the ground.

    For thieves I label my cameras with the numbers 1, 2, 4, 5. Good times.
    12v battery, jumper cables, and a 6013.

    that was the old high school joke, let 3 chickens loose in the school numbered 1,2,4. and they spend days looking for number 3..

    now they have cameras you can put in the woods and monitor them via satellite for a fee....they will alert you of any movement, just like home security cameras..

    me too, but you can also check the cameras from any computer or tablet where you have wifi access....my newer flip phone if wanted can get a data plan for that, just cant see much on a small screen..
