Olde-Fashioned Tree Swing
Great for olde massive trees and free spirited folk, this listing is for a tree swing made of reclaimed olde growth Redwood that was once a water tower atop a 19th century Philadelphia building. We do not take any responsibility for the ruckus and mayhem that may occur on this swing.
- Reclaimed wood
- Manila or Pro-Manila rope
- Finished with Tung Oil

The swing uses Manila rope that is looped through the seat and secured with a fisherman's knot with 5 loops. Each side comes with 25 feet of rope to attach to a tree branch or beam. On average, plan to use 5ft to 7ft of rope to tie to the tree. The rope is 3/4 Manilla with 695 lb tension limit.
If you should need more rope you can purchase it here, http://pegandawlbuilt.com/products/additional-rope-for-peg-and-awl-tree-swing.
We also offer Pro-Manila rope. Pro-Manila rope is a synthetic fiber and, unlike Manila Rope, it will not deteriorate over time due to moisture.
Seat depth for all swings measures 7.5 inches (19 cm) deep.
The rope is 3/4 Manila with 695 pound tension limit. On average, plan to use 5ft to 7ft of rope to tie to the tree.
