    Hot, humid, rainy conditions.
    Think of a cold glass of water on a humid day, and how it sweats. Your tarp is catching cool rain water, condensation happens and it appears to be leaking.

    Trim off the grosgrain rl, and sew it back together using a flat felled seam. Not a total loss.

    Your motto should be "keep it up".

    Do squirrels or raccoons ever bother you while tree hanging? Bears?
