Storm-damaged trees in park turned into works of art

When a storm hit the town of Amboy, Illinois in 1999, many of the trees in the city park were either destroyed or damaged.  But with the help of Marie and Bob Boyer, former residents of Amboy and known for their chainsaw carving, these trees were salvaged and live on now as works of art in the park.  Click on the link below to view a gallery of photos showing the carvings.
