Those are fake trees on the set, probably constructed of cardboard or plywood. Some of them look one dimensional. An insubstantial fake tree would topple if someone tried to climb it. If it didn't fall over, likely the flimsy branch to which the rope was tied would break with the plunging weight of a body, even a small body.

Plus I don't see a step stool or ladder lying kicked over on the ground. Let's say I'm wrong about the trees and they are as sturdy as a man-o-war's mainmast, how did the suicidal munchkin get up the tree? Little people often have hip dysplasia and configurations of the thighs and spine that make shinning up a tree improbable.

I vote bird.
