Ok I think I have it figured out.the tree is 11' circumference, taking up 80% of the tree due to not wanting to be over neighbors' fences all around 8.8 tree space.. extending 8' out will give me a circumference of 32'(I calculated it wrong so I went out and made a mock up in the snow and measured it)
Placing a 4x4 every 8 feet and supporting it in a crisscross pattern to each other.
To the tree I will attach 8 of the hurricane clips that will hold 2x4'* and space them a foot from each other.
On top of the 4x4'* I will put a 2x4 bracing which the ends of the boards held in by the hurricane clips to the tree will be attached to also by hurricane clips.
Hopefully I'm making sense of all this and here is an illustration blue is the floor supports not supposed to be that many only 8.
