It’s January and it’s plus 8 Celsius! Took out a chunk of white ash that fell to the evil EAB and did my first carving of 2018. Felt good giving my battery operated chainsaw a solid workout. I rediscovered my carving muscles. Ouch.😬
This carving is to educate all about this non native ash destroying insect; the Emerald ash borer EAB. It caused the cutting of 500+ ash tree in this small park. The strange thing at the base of the carving is the segmented EAB larvae.
