When I had four little kittens running around the house, I had to move the tree into the bathroom whenever I went out - I had several glass ornaments which would have done them more harm than the loss of the ornament. On top of which, until I moved the tree away, I would come home and find the tree had fallen down or the branches were bent, or ornaments had turned into good footballs...
Always unplug the tree when it isn't in use cos they will bite through a live electrical wire if you aren't careful. Tinsel is also very dangerous for them, esp those long icicle strands.
Have you got a child proof barrier? That can help but ideally, just try to keep kitten and tree separate.
