While it's been months since the Derecho hit the Midwest, debris pickup and forest clearing has started back up. I for one can't believe how many trees there are that still need to be cut down due to damage done by the storm all the way back in August.


Many spots are being turned into dumping sights for the debris, but some artists like Clint Henik are turning the debris into incredible art.

The  Mount Vernon chainsaw artist was featured in an article with KCRG, so we decided to take a look at some of his amazing work! These posts can be found on the Facebook page, Carve R Way.
