Ten sculptors, including Margot McMahon from Oak Park, worked with Chicago Sculpture International and the Chicago Park District to keep dead trees from being removed by sculpting them.

These sculptures are supported by Mayor Rahm Emmanuel and the City of Chicago to bring attention to the number of trees expected to die over the next few years.
