Truro's Transformed Trees

The streets of Truro, Nova Scotia, were once lined with stately Elm trees. However, like many places they have lost most of these trees to Dutch Elm Disease. The town decided to make the best of a bad situation and, in 1999, began the Truro Tree Sculpture Project. The result has been 43 sculptures carved from these Elms; 32 of these are still on display. I get to Truro periodically and on a recent trip managed to capture several of them. I will add more as the opportunity arises.
