Snake was sighted in a car last night and disappeared into the roof cavity. Upon searching today no snake was found but this skin was found. I'll attach all the photos we have, we are fairly confident brown tree snake but wanted some other opinions. Diagonal scale count across the back was 21 if that's helpful.

Great job with the ID :) You're on the money.

Yes, midbody scale row count does help. Exact location would also help, as would better pictures of the skin. You've provided a lot of pictures, but they're not clear/close enough to show some diagnostic features (such as whether or not the subcaudals are divided, and some of the specific head scalation features). If it's the actual snake, pictures like these would be great, but with a skin all we really have to go on it scalation, so fine detail is very important. However, in this case, the snake in question is pretty easy to identify and you've done a great job :)

Thank you so much, first time posting so wasn't too sure what was needed. Thank you for the clarification and the confirmed ID ?
