When Buffalo, New York was hit with a surprise snowstorm in October 2006, nearly 57,000 trees were damaged or destroyed. In light of this unprecedented storm, "Carvings for a Cause" was established as a way to reuse damaged and fallen trees. A local chainsaw artist transformed eight- to twelve-foot tree trunks into depictions of historical and social figures from Western New York, the sale of which will be used to re-tree the region.
