Dead tree art

GreenLadyMotherPeaceIn 2014, a lot of trees in Chicago parks began dying, infected by the Emerald Ash Borer. The Chicago Park District and Chicago Sculpture International created the Chicago Tree Project to turn those dead trees into public art.

This recently transformed tree is Green Lady/Mother Peace by chainsaw artist Gary Keenan, which you can also see on Facebook.

Enjoy more dead tree art at the Chicago Tree Project gallery.
