Actually, trees don't limit reception as bad as I thought. We were in a Shenandoah Valley park with hills and forested area al around.
In a campground where the tall pines were pretty thick, we still had Starlink much of the time even though the trees were maybe 30% of the open sky.
Perfect high speed reception? Nope, but streaming ewas possible with some pixleation and a few second here and there offline (buffering dependent). Email and low demand browsing was hardly interupted at all.
