Amherst, Nova Scotia, Canada: The Fathers of Confederation Tree (Gone)

A dead tree was carved by local artist Bruce Hebert into a kind of vertical Mt. Rushmore, and featured the heads of four of the "Fathers of Confederation," the men who put Canada together, who all came from this town.

On the south edge of downtown, on the east side of Victoria St. W./Hwy 6, just north of Copp Ave.
