Out of the Blue

Over the weekend I was able to finally fix the hole in the backyard gate that Hudson the wonder dog chewed back in the day as one of her escape routes. I've tried to address this several times in the past, but was never able to locate a place that sells the pickets or lengths of fencing until my neighbor replaced some of his own fence, allowing me to scavenge from his old one. I had to cut them to fit, but now they are in place, and the gate is nearly as good as new. This has me looking to address our other fencing issue, but I'm a little stuck as to how. There's a section of fence that's been displaced by a tree, and I'd really like to cut it off on either side so the tree is like a natural part of the fence, but don't want to nail the ends of the fence into the tree (I've read mixed wisdom on how bad nails are for trees, but there's general agreement they aren't really good for them)... I've considering fashioning some sort of wooden brace to go around the tree, but that seems like something that would end up too clunky and ugly even if I was a woodworking pro, which I obviously am not, so if anyone has any clever ideas on how to secure a fence to a tree without committing some sort of crime against nature or aesthetics along the way, I'm all ears.
