Tree Stump Sculpture

Aging trees, diseased trees, and trees destroyed by storms are receiving a new lease on life which is ironic in a cemetery.

The majority of the carvings are done by chain saw with fine detail chiseled by hand. After completion the trees are coated with a protective sealant.

Most carvings are related to nature or belief in religion.
