BUENA VISTA TOWNSHIP — Chainsaw artist Brian Ackley will carve a 235-year-old oak tree that died last year into a panoramic display featuring highlights of the township’s 150-year history.

The carving will begin at 8 a.m. Dec. 5 at Saw Mill Park in Richland Village and will continue over a seven- to nine-day period, Mayor Chuck Chiarello said in a statement.

All residents are invited to watch the carving from a safe distance.
