Um, that looks like a dock line for a boat which a kid would put in a tree as a swing:

Now, here’s the guy who first reported the “noose” who bravely cut it down in front of a local news crew, doing his part to fight racism and/or after-school shenanigans. Note that it looks like it’s been in the tree for quite some time:
A noose was found near Northbridge Park off of Grandview Drive in Santa Clarita last night.
A Valencia resident disgusted with the display worked to cut it down this morning to ensure no one felt intimidated or unwelcome in his neighborhood. pic.twitter.com/JKYEDpAKdy
