    Yeah, I was a Swinger of Birches, and anything else that was climbable when I was 7-8 or so. Then a branch broke, I came down fast and hard and broke my left elbow in two places, Spent all summer in a cast, and when the cast came off I couldn’t move the elbow. Took another month or two to get it loose enough to use. That’s when I learned to climb only when necessary, and then to first check the stability and weight bearing capacity of whatever I was going to climb. That was 80 years ago, and have yet to break another bone.

    Birches grow wild in clumps in rural NE MA, and I, too, swung on them. But I was lucky. I fell off a bending trunk more than once, but never got anything other than bruises and scrapes. Great fun if you are young and small.
