Dying tree at Library  becomes work of art

Chainsaw artist Day- ton Scoggins is shown in the early stages of wood sculpture that will be displayed in the courtyard of the Lucedale-George Regional Library. The statue is expected to be completed by Wednesday. See story below for more information.

This week the curious have witnessed an amazing display as the remains of a dying 75-year-old white oak tree on the west side of the library has been transformed.

Last fall it was noticed the tree was dying, according to City Clerk Laura Maples. It was going to have to be removed, leaving an unsightly stump.
