To talk someone down is to speak to them in a soothing voice in an attempt to calm them down, especially when they're vomit-drunk or having a bad trip. This usually takes place behind or next to the person having a bad trip, in front of a bathroom mirror in a stranger's house while your best friend is curled up in a ball in the bathtub and someone already has the toilet.

This is an old phrase that has become condesed and reversed in the original meaning. Originally to be in a tree was to be stuck somewhere mentally, emotionally or situationally that you could not easily escape from on your own. The proverbial cat stuck in a tree that the proverbial fireman needs to rescue. Of course, cats are perfectly capable of getting out of trees, which is why we do not see many cat skeletons in trees. However, it is not uncommon to see a fellow human, so distraught be whatever is affecting them, they they have lost their way and cannot see a way out. Proverbially, they are stuck in a tree and need someone to talk them down, out of their tree.
