anti-climb paint

Subject: anti-climb paint

Dear all, we have a tree on public open space and adjacent to properties that 
is regularly being climbed by children. Not to a particularly high level but 
sufficient to cause injury should they fall and there are some ASB issues. 
Physical barriers are likely to act as a large litter bin and cause a fire 
hazard so we are currently contemplating the use of anti-climb paint. Tree 
specific ACP appears non-existent but I could be wrong. If I am then where 
can it be found? If not then does anyone have experience of applying the 
readily available ACP to trees and have there been any detrimental effects?
