Sculptor Johnny Woodford decides he needs a creative tidy-up on his woodland and, using a chainsaw, creates wonderful wooden sculptures using storm timber and discarded bark ready to burn on a carefully constructed community bonfire. Whilst designing and building, Johnny shares his quiet passion for working with wood.

Join Anne Watson, David Lucas and Patrick Brown as they demonstrate and discuss their passion for chainsaw carving at `Treefest` at Westonbirt Arboretum. Anne`s father had a timber business and she grew up surrounded by the tools; David developed his interest having seen a chainsaw carving show and Patrick, with a background in forestry, is a self-taught sculptor. Here they explain the difficulties and delights of producing certain designs as well as the dangers and important safeguards behind the process.
