Installation of a tree sculpture commissioned by Friends of Marple Memorial Park as part of their 2008 BBC Breathing Places project. The sculpture created by chainsaw artist Andrew Frost was installed in the small woodland behind Marple Library.
The Friends of Marple Memorial Park would like to thank tree surgeons Dave and Greg of Myers Tree Care for making it a very special day today by installing our new Breathing Places sculpture completely free of charge.
Over the years Myers Tree Care's support for local community and heritage projects in Marple has been exceptional and they certainly continued that tradition today. There are more photos on our web site of Dave and Greg grafting hard to set the sculpture in its final resting place following it being displayed at the Tatton Show by chainsaw artist Andrew Frost.
The sculpture really has transformed the area and it was drawing visitors into the woodland even before the concrete had set! We are very grateful to Myers Tree Care for their regular support of our local park.
