What about using fire proof fabric to make a lightweight chimney. With some iron wire to keep it in shape.

Or you could hang the fabric chimney on the branch.

That may work, but we need more information about the fabric, for example, at what temperature the fabric is flammable? how fabric long term fire resistence is influenced by long term heat exposure? how fabric porosity is influenced by long term heat exposure? Many more questions can be asked...

I wonder about aluminium foil for a quick one time throw away stove or a light piece of PVC pipe to use as a form in a pile of dirt shaped like an ant hill, just make a pile of dirt with the pipe in a 90 and then pull it out and fire it up. The pipe would be 3-4 inch dia and 2 pieces cut at 45 deg to form a 90. This could be a camping type thing and very light.

I tested with fire (extinguishing) blanket. It dismantled in direct fire but I have to test it as a chimney.
The bottom of the chimney should be steel or aluminium.

This website shows a silica woven fabric that can withstand 1800 F.
