Chainsaw Log Art
Artists Jerry Redi and Randy Boni from Smoky Mountain Art have undertaken a remarkable project at William B. Umstead State Park. They have skillfully transformed a fallen 25-foot-long red oak tree into an awe-inspiring work of art. Over the course of a week in mid-November, using chainsaws as their tools, they meticulously carved a captivating array of animals, tree branches, and leaves into the tree, which rests beside the Graylyn multi-use trail. This trail is just one of six multi-use trails encompassing a total of 13 miles within the park, offering hikers, cyclists, and horseback riders a variety of scenic paths to explore.
