I am going to go out on a "limb" here (sorry) and suggest that most nooses one might find in trees or elsewhere in the area are likely completely innocent. If one is making a swing or ladder or tying back vegetation, the result may bear a resemblance to a noose. To make the assumption that it is nefarious - without some other context like nearby graffiti - is a bit silly.
