In some countries they use an organic solution to this problem.  A trained monkey climbs of the tree and dislodges the nut.  Would that be an option where you live?

Everything has a risk assiciated with it, and I would suggest the risk attendant on sending a monkey up a tree (as has been done for generations) is a lot less than a home-made contraption 30 feet above your head.
(Unless it's a rabid monkey, of course #;¬)

Personally I'm not a fan of the AT-AT base, I'd much rather have my coconut picker mounted on a death star, the AT-AT sinks into the sand far too much and doesn't cope well with monsoons. When will the death star mounted model be available for beta testing?

You could chuck rocks or sticks at them, like when kids collect conkers...

Other ideas:
Throw a rope loop up high in the tree and shake it
Ram the tree with a car (ill advised at best)
Get a rake and give it an extra long handle
Make a human pyramid
Sneak up on the tree when it's asleep (everyone knows they sleep lying on the ground when noones around)
Use a sling-belt-thing to climb the tree

Look into the same type vibrator they use to harvest pecans.  A largish tractor backs up to the tree and grabs it about 8' off the ground that the the vibrator shakes the dickens out of it and all the ripe pecans fall off.  Something like that might work if you find the Burf-O-Vator 9000 too expensive or hard to get.
