    what tools did the artist/s use in crafting their work?

      Hi Liam,

      Many of the trees that still exist were carved using steel tools. They tend to have deeper and straighter cuts. Older carved trees were cut using flaked stone tools and ground edged axes.

      Thanks.

    Hi, I was wondering what the process would be for removal of a scarred tree to build an extension on school grounds. I am personally against it and was wondering how to prevent it. The local botanical garden experts have said it is over 300 years old and the markings indicate that it was used for burial ceremonies. Can you advise me on the best places to get further information.
