NoVA Chainsaw Artist Turns Tree Stumps into Whimsical Art Sculptures

At Fairfax City’s Ratcliffe Park, children run in circles around Andrew Mallon’s sculpture. Some grab it for leverage as they make sharp turns. Others try to climb it. No one tells them to stop.

Whereas most works of art come with stern warnings for admirers to keep their hands off, Mallon’s sculpture, Whimsical Treehouse, is not most works of art. Mallon is a chainsaw artist whose medium is tree stumps.
