Community Requests

name: Emir Mulahmetovic
topics: Just recently bought a property in Blasdell and chopped down one of the dead trees in my yard. Left a tall stump, about 4 - 5 ft tall. Would like to carve a lion or something really cool. Would like estimates on this type of work. Please email me if you know anyone who can help

name: Darlene Maclay
topics: We live in williamsville and have a dead Ash tree that has been cut down to a perfectly erect 10 foot stump and we would like to have it carved. Do you have anyone in the area who you would recommend? Thank you

name: Ted Zulawski
topics: I am reaching out after a conversation at the Erie County Fair. I have a 30 foot long, 14x14 inch hand hewn log in my creek that was part of an old mill. It washed out this spring. Is it worth salvaging? Selling?

name: Sara Johnson
topics: We will be cutting down 2 black walnut trees in the next few days. They are nice and straight. They are about 4"-7" in diameter at the base and abut 20' high? My neighbors would like to use them for fire wood but I thought there might be someone who carves that might like to use it. Do you think any of your members would be interested? I am in North Buffalo.

Please contact Bill Scudder for further information if interested in helping with any of these requests
