I carve within 50 miles of my shop in Festus, which includes the St. Louis Metro are. Occasionally I go further. I do on-site carvings from April to September.
Ideally it is best if the tree is in a location of your property where you can enjoy it often. I don't cut rees down. Most carvings can be achieved in one day out of an 8 foot stump. Call me to discuss ideas. You can send a text of the tree trunk to 636 209-0514. I can advise how tall to have the tree trimmer leave the stump. Anything over 10 feet will require multiple scaffolding and take longer ....costing more.Maximum height -15 feet
One Day within 50 miles $995
Carving includes 8-10 hours work. It includes chainsaw carving, sanding, chisel work, possible painting or staining and sealing if the wood is dry enough. It includes cleanup and fungicide treatment also if requested. Some customers request that I just carve for 8-10 hours to get the maximum detail on their piece, leaving the cleanup, and painting or sealing to themselves,which they can do. We can either take the sawdust and wood chunks with us or leave them for mulch and firewood.
