I've read up on the maxibrute postings and the night exterior postings, but what I'm wondering is how much does either bouncing or shining thru grid cloth cut down on the exposure level of the maxibrute?
Or should I scrap the maxi because of the trees and just use 5ks and 2ks as like rays of moonlight hidden in and behind trees?
Sorry if this question is too broad, I guess I just have to make the call.

It's not too tough to have a couple diffusion frames standing by the light and just use trial and error to see what's workable. And if you lose too much stop to the lightest diffusion, pull the frame and go hard.
I think in situation where you have a lot of objects between you and the light (trees in this case), using a multi-globe unit like a Maxi will be better than using a large unit with a single globe like a 10K. The light will penetrate deeper into the forest because it's coming from a number of lamps in slightly different positions. The downside would be the slightly weird shadow pattern, but that's not as much of an issue if you're using it as a backlight.
It's probably a good idea to have more units handy, as it's likely that you'll need something besides the Maxi at some point during the evening.
