New Life to Old Trees


Lincoln Regional Center 
A 75-foot blue spruce tree, estimated to be about 80 years old, was carved into a bear sculpture and a 52-year-old black walnut tree was carved into an eagle sculpture

The Lincoln Regional Center (LRC) recently had to cut down two of the property’s trees because of construction on site and the condition of the trees.

Not wanting the trees to go to waste, LRC saved 10-foot stumps from both trees saved and had them turned into sculptures.

A 75-foot blue spruce tree, estimated to be about 80 years old, was carved into a bear sculpture and a 52-year-old black walnut tree was carved into an eagle sculpture. 

The sculptures are now on the path of the facility’s nature trail and will be dedicated at LRC’s annual Arbor Day ceremony on April 23.

LRC is part of DHHS’ Division of Behavioral Health.
