The North End has lost many of there trees in the past year. Some to disease, other to storms. One very tree, a 100 year old elm, lived in front of committee member Steven Roll's house and came down during a storm last fall landing on his families home. While having the tree removed from his house, Steven asked the contractors to save a few lengths of the tree in hopes that they would some day find a repurposed.

We are happy to say these lengths of 100 elm tree will find there way to the revitalised Louisa Gardens in the form of carvings. On Build Day (Sept 8), local Cape Breton chain saw artist Liam Tromans will be on hand giving a chainsaw demonstration and carving up a piece which will be incorporated into the park.

Liam, a professional pulp cutter for 20 years, now uses his self-learned chain saw technique both in his studio and at customer's properties. Liam's Studio-is located at 11211 Kempt Head Road. Trans-Canada Highway (Exit 13) between Baddeck and North Sydney near Seal Island Bridge. Visit The Cape Breton Centre for Craft and Design to find out more about Liam.
