I have MOVED locations! I'm not setup for visitors yet.  I am at the Farmers market in Minden every Saturday, and can bring carvings with me.

Rich Hevesi has been transforming old trees and logs into beautiful works of art since 2014 in the heart of cottage country in the Haliburton Highlands, Ontario. Chainsaw carving is his passion and hobby. Rich uses his artistic talents, a chainsaw and a few other tools complete his art.

Many people have an attachment to their trees and are quite upset when it is time for the tree to come down. Carving the left over stump is one way to extend its life and continue your enjoyment of the tree for years to come at your home or cottage. If you don't have an old stump thats not a problem at all. Rich has a large supply of logs to create what you are looking for. Carvings are a great addition to your outdoor living space.

Prices do vary depending on size, type of wood and amount of detail. If you are interested in getting a carving please send an email and I will get back to you.

On Site carvings

Are you in the local Haliburton area and looking for a custom carving on a tree that's been taken down on your property? No problem, please send me an email to discuss further. Some basic info I need to know is; how big is the stump (width and height), and ideally if you know what kind of tree it was would be fantastic. Onsite carvings start around $750 for a small item. However most people have large stumps they want carved, the average prices for my onsite work $3,000-$5,000.

Sorry I am NOT booking any on site carvings at this point in time.
