Is this a bowline?

It's a bowline, but tied this way it would be hard to adjust, losing its greatest advantage. Note the over-thought, overdone tieoff which may actually be acting as an anchor.

The massive tree would be fine, adding the two barely buried blocks introduces the risk of fatal missiles for the kids below. It had poured rain the night before, loosening the soil.
