I never remove a tree altogether, always choosing to leave a bole, a stump of 5' to 25'. I enjoy watching the bole slowly mature, peeling off layers like an ecdysiast it reveals its inner self while providing nutrients to the soil, beauty to the landscape, and a home for insects, birds, and mammals. This plaited copper bole began life as dusty, red-orange copper. The patina constantly changing the color evolves guided by the metal's interactions with the environment. 40" x24" x30"
