The roof is holding up well...My issue that I need a solve for is the area around the tree penetration. The water rolls off of the roof into the treehouse and the water runs down the tree and end up on the floor of the Treehouse.

Use step flashings to make a collar some 4-5" away from the tree. Then overlay the top half with bituthene. Then wrap a flexible booty (truck tire innertube) around the tree & over the step flashing.

Excellent Suggestion - How Do you suggest fastening the flexible booty to the tree and to the flashing?

let it flop over the flashing. Use bungee cord or a few small nails at the tree, plus 3 tubes of caulk if desired!
