Default Chainsaw Competition - lemonade from lemons.

The city of Craig, Colorado, had a number of cottonwood trees in the City Park that were diseased and had to be cut down. Someone had the brilliant idea to have a chainsaw sculpture contest. The results are amazing.

Thanks so much for sharing. I lived in Craig, Colorado about 37 years and played with my kids in that park.

Thanks for posting! There certainly are some very talented artists that can use a chainsaw. I love the one of the children reaching to touch hands. My favorite is the eagle on one side and the tribute to the American soldiers on the other. That one should have a special place, like on the lawn close to Vietnam War Memorial in Washington DC; or even better yet, a new Memorial for all the guys and gals that service these last 10 years. All are beautiful works! Thanks for sharing!
