Do You Have An Old Tree On Your Front Lawn?

Do you have an old tree on your front lawn and it's time to have it removed before it falls down.  You have passed by this old tree thousands of times, cut the grass around it and maybe hung some Christmas trees lights on it.

It's hard to make the decision to have the tree taken down, you feel bad having the old tree removed.  Well, we have the solution for you.  Have a look here at what one of our neighbours came up with.

Get your neighbours all together and you could all have your own street of "treemen".

That would be pretty cool Lori.  We have only seen wood carving like this at exhibits and craft stores. Good work isn't it?

Great point John. We have seen uses for tree stumps before, but never like this.

LOL, us too Jim. And the patience aspect, we would never make it through all that detailed carving.

Yes Michael we agree and it is pretty neat to look at.   

Really good isn't it Marney? Too bad whoever the artist was didn't sign his name, guess that would have commercialized it.

That is so true Ed. We have never seen anything like this on someone's front lawn before, its great!

Yes, Michelle, no photo shopping here!

It is an honour to the old tree for sure Wanda! Now its a piece of art.

Uh-oh! What seed have we planted? Maybe you should stay put George, it's safer that way!  But you could slip over to Ed's place.......

Absolutely agree with you Liz. It has pretty big trunck and it was close to the house, maybe it was encroaching or something.

For sure Russel, how many people can do something like this? It is a piece of artwork now!  We have another guy that makes ice sculptures every year on his front lawn in the winter, he is just as amazing.

Very unique and creative isn't it Melinda and as Ed Silva says saved on removing the roots

I've seen many of these sculptures in our area over the years and I think it's a clever way to create a piece of art from a tree that's dead or dying.

Al and Peggy - Perhaps this tree is a friend of the talking, moving trees in Lord of the Rings.

I see a lot of this in my neck of the woods... its soo much better than just chopping a tree down, isn't it?
