A tree carving called ‘Hope’

with a wonderful story behind it …

The tree sculpture features intricate wood details carved into an Ash tree by Dorsey James –  one of Canada’s premier wood carvers.

The sculpture is at the entrance of Greenwood Conservation Area, Ajax in Ontario. The tree was recovered as part of the Town’s Emerald Ash Borer Management Strategy and was reused to produce the environmentally responsible art piece.

Have a great day!
