Two Sides of Freedom: Chainsaw Tree

Don't pass up the opportunity to see this beautiful monument.

[Shannon and Ashley, 06/21/2019]

Especially poignant: a soldier's weapon and helmet grave marker high in a tree trunk hollow.

Two Sides of Freedom: Chainsaw Tree

Talented artist -- rarely do you see such fine workmanship in chainsaw carving. The eagle's feathers are so thin the breeze actually moves them slightly. As a family of retired military and a gold star child I was very touched by this display.

The Two Sides of Freedom.

The Two Sides of Freedom

Chainsaw sculptor Clayton Coss turned a damaged tree into a work of art. The back side of the tree has two children playing, an American flag, and an eagle. The front side of the tree has a soldier holding a gun, each medal of honor that can be awarded, a folded flag given to a deceased soldier's family, and a fallen soldier's gun and helmet.

[DenverAnn, 09/05/2013]

The 21-foot-tall trunk was all that remained of an oak tree killed in a 2007 ice storm. Coss carved the sculpture in October 2009.
