Easy and inexpensive to make, a tree swing is fun for everyone in the family. While the above video does not mention, most adults love swinging too. The tree swing Cotton made is hanging from a tree branch that extends from the tree far from a 45 degree angle (more like 25 deg.,) however if you never looked up, you would never know it. Remember, those high-up branches are actually much larger and stronger than they appear. To hang the swing without a ladder, just take a round weight of some kind, and attach to it a thin twine or fishing line, cut at least twice the distance of the ground to the limb. You may choose to now tie the unweighted end of the line to your swing rope, or you can do it after you have successfully maneuvered the rock end across the limb. It may take several attempts, but after deciding where you want your two ropes to hang from the tree, toss the weighted end over the designated branch until the line/string is positioned where you want it to be. It is preferable to have a greater distance between the ropes that hang from the tree, for more stability. Take care to position the ropes far enough from the tree that the "swinger" will not risk hitting the tree during a swing. With the leading end of your mtn. climbing rope, (cut no less in length than 2 X the distance from ground to tree limb,) tied to the unweighted end of your twine/line, pull the weighted end until you bring the leading end of mountain climbing rope over the limb, and back to you. There are many knots you can use, but a good slip-knot on the remaining end, with the leading end threaded through the loop works great. Make sure the ropes are where you want them to be, as it will be almost impossible to redo, once you pull it taught. If you have questions, please email me.
