What Does A City Do When Their Trees Are Dying?

In 1999, it was discovered that many of the trees in the Craig City Park were diseased and were becoming hazardous. Trees are presious and there was backlash from the community about the decision to remove the trees. 

City employee Mike Shelton came up with the idea to have chainsaw carvers to whittle the stumps into pieces of art.
