Story & Experience

We had to cut a tree whose root ball had shifted during a microburst, leaving the crown of this white pine leaning toward our bedroom. We left twelve feet of tree with the idea to offer love in the form of a sculpture. The image here is just the beginning. We have since carved quite a bit more of a NH scene, with water, wildlife, and magic.
