Olde-Fashioned Tree Swing
Great for olde massive trees and free spirited folk, this tree swing is made of responsibly-sourced Cypress from the south eastern region of the United States. We work closely with a lumber yard that is a part of the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and has been supplying woodworkers with the highest-quality domestic hardwood since 1798.
We do not take any responsibility for the ruckus and mayhem that may occur on this swing.

VIDEO: How to Hang Your Tree Swing
The swing uses Pro-Manila rope that is looped through the seat and secured with a five loop fisherman’s knot. Each side comes with 25 feet of rope to attach to a tree branch or beam. On average, plan to use 5′ to 7′ of rope to tie to the tree.
Our tree swings use Pro-Manila rope. Pro-Manila rope is a synthetic fiber and will not deteriorate over time due to moisture. We also stock natural Manilla rope, which is made of natural fibers. Manila rope will self abrade and deteriorate over time when left outside in the elements. It will also shrink 10% to 15% when wet, but will stretch back out to the original length once dry. If you would prefer a swing with the natural Manila rope, please email us at email@example.com before placing your order.
Make sure to inspect the rope prior to using the swing. If there is any noticeable wear on the rope, it will need to be replaced to prevent breaking and injury. Peg and Awl is not responsible for the deterioration of the rope.
