Chainsaws Welcome

This tree is in the back yard of a house on Arbor Avenue in my neighborhood in Fort Wayne, Indiana. It is one of many in this part of the city that was damaged by the June 13, 2022 derecho, a storm with hurricane-force winds that also damaged many homes in the area.

A lot of the homeowners with fallen trees allowed people to take the wood in exchange for cutting it up and cleaning up the mess. The woman who owns this place put a sign on one of her trees with hand-drawn hearts that said "Chainsaws Welcome" to let people know that they were welcome to cut up and haul away her broken trees. She had a lot more debris from fallen trees piled up along the road in front of the house, too!

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
