When you look front on you can see trees laser cut into steel, when you view the side of the sculpture you see only an outline and finally looking at the back of the sculpture you see what has become of the trees. The installation references the diminishing trees along our coastline that have been chopped down because of development. The sawblade is a major tool in cutting the tree logs into the shapes we need. The sawblades are rolling down the hill as if chopping down trees as they go.
