Tree sculptures are carved from ALREADY CUT trees.
If you are removing a tree from your yard and are considering having it turned into a piece of art, have it cut by a PROFESSIONAL TREE SERVICE, and specify that you would like them to LEAVE THE STUMP to be carved. Depending on how tall you want your sculpture, leaving 7 to 10 feet usually is OK.
If you have an already cut stump, or a tree you are ready to cut, CONTACT ME, and I will be glad to take a look at it to see how to proceed.
I can sculpt most any kind of tree, exceptions being Eucalyptus and trees on dangerous hillsides. If a tree stump is rotted, it will be no good for carving.
Exceptions can be made for smaller carvings. Sculpting anything above 7 feet requires scaffolding and can be tricky, so it can get more expensive the higher the carving is. (An existing 10ft stump can be cut to a shorter size to get a lower price)
I also offer MULTIPLE TREE DISCOUNTS if you have 2 or more trees you want done.
If you have a REDWOOD you need removed and carved, have them save the logs for me (4-6ft) and I'll knock the price down a bit.
Afterward, you will need to coat your sculpture with a PENETRATING OIL STAIN to preserve it. Once or twice a year is good, and the more oil the better. It is possible to have a tree sculpture last indefinitely if it's oiled regularly.
As you can see, the designs are limited by the size and shape of the stump. STANDING BEARS, or BABY BEARS IN THE LOG fit the best, but other designs are possible.
I can travel pretty much anywhere, however travel costs will have to be figured-in outside the SF Bay Area.
Sometimes, homeowners need to remove a prized tree for various reasons, and would like to have something to remember it by.
What better then to commission an artist to turn it into a permanent piece of art! (And no one could steal it!)
