A couple swings we made to support a 200+ year oak. Three 5/8" round bar twisted with an old hand held electric pipe threader. 1/4" plate textured to look like wood for the seats.

Very clever and nice looking work. Thanks for sharing your pics!

I guess they could always lop them off and burn em, interesting to think what shade the canopy has cast in the past.

Trees don't heal well from having large limbs removed. All my reading on tree care recommends not removing limbs over 4 inches unless already dead. Since the limb feeds the trunk, a portion of the trunk may die from removing a larger limb.
