    If you are just after long lasting protection , then autoglym,s srp then Collinite 915 wax will give you the toughest protection .
    but as fingers66 as said chop the tree down or at least dont park the car under it .

    Autoglym extra gloss protection, its easy on & off.
    I would comprimise on the tree though, just get it pollarded.

    Meggies quick detailer if your going to clay it, the bottle goes a long way & good for just a quick clean too.
    I would still say EGP is your best bet, if your carefull applying it, you won't need to mask it.
