In this case a rotor would be best. I too have a tree problem and while I can watch most of what I want if I point my antenna in the direction of most station's towers, I will not always get a reliable picture. Just last night while watching a station (real Ch. 25 with a NM of around 65) I had the antenna pointed right at the tower but it was also pointed right into a tree. By moving the antenna just five degrees more to the north I eliminated the picture break up. While the antenna was still pointed at the tree, at least I found the right spot where enough signal got through to prevent the multipath picture breakup.

The only real solution to the problem is to be able to rotate the antenna. Otherwise a fixed antenna will likely run into the same problem that I have and have had in the past with the trees impacting the signal. Rotating the antennas solved the problem.
