Hanging an outdoor swing


I have a large tree in my yard but the branches are to high to hang my daughters toddler swing. I wanted to try making an a frame swing stand and attaching Tito the tree with a 4x4 or 4x6 how do I go about this

If you build a frame to hang the swing from why would you need to attach it to the tree? Just make it free standing.

Rope comes in an amazing array of lengths. You just have to get it up there of course.
