Local Artist To Begin Work to Transform 300-year-old historic Linden Oak to Public Art

Montgomery Parks’ 300-year-old historic linden oak tree was loved by many. The tree was taken down in July due to declining health, however, the wood salvaged from the tree will carry on its legacy as a park bench. Local chainsaw artist Colin Vale will begin carving the wood from the tree the first week of October. Once complete, the bench will be placed at Ken-Gar Palisades Local Park.   

What:     Linden Oak tree carving

When:    October 2, 2023, 11:00 a.m. Carving begins, 1:30 p.m.

Where:   Ken-Gar Palisades Local Park, 4140 Wexford Drive, Kensington, MD 20895

 The carving of the new bench is expected to be completed by Thanksgiving. Featured photo courtesy of Google Maps.
