Chainsaw Artist Transforms Trees into Art

Bridgeport, Washington is a small town on the Columbia River, near  Chief Joseph Dam.  The town’s old sycamore trees, which lined the main street, were in sad shape but instead of being cut down, chainsaw artist Jacob Lucas has transformed them into incredible sculptures.

With a CHAINSAW!

(And by the way he does custom orders if you have a tree stump in need of being transformed.)

Salmon, quail, wolves, cougars, bear, the logging industry, deer, farming, pelicans, beavers, dragonfly, bees and honeycomb, eagles and other native species are a few of the themes of the tree sculptures.

See an owl swoop down to catch  jackrabbit below.

  1. I would like to watch someone working with their chainsaw. Clear idea to repurpose these trees into something folks can enjoy.

  2. Incredible! He needs to be invited to Shadyside / East Liberty where the Sycamores are reshaped by the Electric Co. for THEIR “Purpose” —
    not re-purposed!!!

  3. I do applaud artists of this type and the skill requited to create the art. It’s not that they just use a chainsaw to create a figure, Ruth, but it’s the detail that they add to the piece. Whether it’s the feathers on a crane or the fur on a bear, their talent is really unbelievable.
