Summary:
The front of a dying ash tree is carved with a relief of an owl. Above the owl, the tree is carved to resemble tree branches. The sides of the tree are carved with a small set of steps and a square window for children to look through the center of the tree. Carved around the window are the words: GIVE A HOOT. The artist used a chain saw to carve this tree into a sculpture for children to play on.
