The tree could be choked by the chain link if it grew through a link hole in the fence.

Trees have a layer called the cambium, which supplies nutrition from the roots to the rest of the tree. If this layer is damaged the tree will suffer and possibly die.

In the instance of a chain link fence the tree has very little chance of survival because the link will cut the cambium all the way around the trunk causing the tree to choke to death.

If the dead tree happened to go unnoticed there is a good chance it would rot and fall down.
