I want to install a birdhouse on the side of a tree. The mounting bracket must be screwed in. Is this going to hurt the tree?

A few screws into a tree won't hurt it as long as it's not a sapling.

It's a very old tree, likely 60+ years and is well-maintained. I did not want to hurt it in any way.

No harm will come to an old tree from a few screws.
