Minneapolis, Minnesota: Lorax Stump

Sculpted by chainsaw artist Curtis Ingvoldstad out of a red oak stump on a private home's front lawn in early 2017. The Lorax, a Dr. Seuss character, has a pensive expression, as if contemplating the stumpification of even more trees.

310 W. Minnehaha Pkwy, Minneapolis, MN
South side of the city. I-35W exit 12. Turn west onto E. Diamond Lake Rd.

Lorax Stump

The sculpture of Dr. Seuss's Lorax from a dead tree stump is an awesome carving. It's in a beautiful, quiet neighborhood.
