Chainsaw artist Jesse Green took a dying 85-foot-tall red oak tree in Plainville and sculpted it into an upright 24-foot-tall baseball bat. The tree, which is still rooted, was dying partly because of an adjacent parking lot for the town's baseball and softball fields. Green, his every move recorded for a reality TV series, needed only a few days to transform the tree into the bat, which was unveiled in April 2012.
