If the tree is isolated from other trees, so the 'coon can't jump from
one to the other, a large, cone-shaped sheet metal collar on the trunk
will keep most of them from climbing the tree. Or a very wide band of
sheet metal flashing that they can't grip.
I met a lady who kept them off her vines by putting containers of human
urine around the vines, too.
In many parts of the country raccoons are a virtual plague, so that
even if you live trap them, the best thing to do is kill them. No one
wants them and dumping them elsewhere just gives someone else your
problem. Also, they carry distemper that can get into household pets.
