He Needed To Cut Down His Tree, Instead He Turned It Into This

Post by Guest on Fri Feb 26, 2016 10:48 am

Sometimes you're forced to cut down trees. It could be mandated by local authorities or your hand is forced because the tree is in danger of toppling over on your house.
But the tree doesn't have to be removed completely.
This homeowner decided to keep a large portion of the trunk. Then he paid an artist to carve this epic dragon, which now keeps guard over his house.

It's majestic and detailed and just plain awesome. And it sure beats the neighborhood pink flamingo collection.

Each time we have a serious tornado storm blow through this region there's a group of chainsaw artists that will respond and while they lend their manpower to helping cut up and clean up they're keeping an eye out for possible art stumps to utilize; with the home/land owners permission. FOR FREE~~
It's called 'CHAINSAWART' here in the states...

My favorites are the simpler trees stumps that are used for house identification numbers &/or a fairy type of little home and the ones that we can put flower pots on---but there are some awesome images---those are just a few.

And it's really an oddity here in the states; what our home owners insurance policy will pay for after a huge wind or ice storm damage; I've had to pay out of pocket for the tree removal but not for the actual damage that having a huge tree drop it's limbs all over my yard/fences and buildings! And the cost to have a 'STUMP' ground down/chipped up is WOW, so very costly --- making a hardscape/yard art out of those stumps is such a money saver too. Surprised

mmm...I admire the skill of these guys...and the real lumberjacks who shin up trees to top em out and delimb them...

I;ve taken a few down in me time not huge by any means...

I dont care to takle owt over 18 inch dia...thanks ... affraid
and I DONT like leaners...even when they are leaning the way I want em to fall, they are known as "widdow makers" for good reasons....

them guys that drop huge trees in confined spaces are the tops

any berk with a chain saw can make a tree fall over

making it fall in a controlled manner and exactly where you want is is a whole different ball game

doing that and not killing yourself or anyone else is a triumph
