An onsite carving is a wonderful way to add beauty and value to your home or cabin. When you commission I Saw It In Minnesota to do an onsite carving, Joe or Ben will come and meet with you evaluate your tree(s) and work with you to come up with a design to fit your landscape. We want to make sure that both the tree and the design will work together. We can do large scale carvings over 15 feet tall to smaller scale carvings just a few feet high. It is a great way to memorialize a long living tree with sentimental value.
We love making the chainsaw carvings! Check out the video below and also be sure to check out our YouTube channel for even more videos!
