The Elm Tree died this year, so we decided to have something
carved from it instead of just cutting it down. The decision was
for a Shawnee Indian or a turkey and bear. Because the tree had
too much decayed wood, there was not enough wood to carve the
Indian, thus the bear or turkey.
This carving, was done with donations, at no cost to the
taxpayers of Marion County. If you would like to donate, please
contact Brad Hochwitt.
"Goods from the Woods," Brad Hochwitt, 7294 Highway 14 North,
Yellville, Ar. 72687 did the carvings and he is available to do
carving for you. Contact him at the above address or call
