Tree Swing {Family Life Project 52}

First of all, every house should have a good tree.

Second of all, that good tree should have a swing.

I have wanted a swing for our majestic Horse Chestnut Tree since the day we moved in.  I’m pretty picky about aesthetic on the homefront, so it took me quite a while before I found the perfect one from Peg and Awl on Etsy.

The next problem was figuring out how to put it up when the closest branch was 30 feet above ground :)

We had some professional tree pruners come to prune our bushes and trees this week and I was inspired to ask if they could put up our swing that I’ve had sitting in my closet for six months…

If you wondered if professional tree climbers exist… they do. The guy harnessed himself in, tossed a rope thirty feet in the air and lassoed a branch. It took him about 30 seconds to pull and walk himself up the tree. Amazing.



Best of all… it’s totally wide enough to hold two people and strong enough to hold adults.  I haven’t laughed and soared with glee through the air like that in 25 years!

Best stress relief of the whole year.
