Carving attracts viewers

Tree Carving

A bear, a beehive and an owl can all be seen in one Boardman front yard.

The trio are all carved into the trunk of what’s left of a maple tree on Simon Road.

The homeowners recently had Mike Highfield of Canfield cut down the nearly 70-foot tree for safety reasons.

Highfield then carved the remaining 15-foot trunk with the bear coming out of the base, beehive above and owl perched on top.

The homeowners said they’re impressed by what he created and it’s caught the attention of others as well.

“People stop, take pictures,” said homeowner William Lehman. “It’s something different.”

The homeowners also left part of the tree on display for their grandchildren to sign.

They even added a bench to better enjoy the carving.
