Yorkshire Chainsaw Sculptor

Himalayan Garden, The Hutts, Grewelthorpe, Ripon HG4 3DA

Karl Barker, renowned Yorkshire Chainsaw sculptor will be onsite at the Himalayan Garden & Sculpture Park to create a new sculpture for its large collection.

Situated in the heart of the garden is a large 9ft tall tree stump with a circumference of just over 17ft – all that is left of a beautiful 3 stem, 150-year-old Hungarian Oak tree, which was felled for safety reasons last year after considerable storm damage.

The Himalayan Garden team decided it was fitting to create something new from the old tree for people to continue to enjoy, and commissioned Karl to create something special for visitors to enjoy when the garden reopens on Tuesday 4th April.
