Dutch Elm diseased trees transformed into art in Sussex

Help

A couple from East Sussex have had diseased trees in their garden transformed into works of art.

Teresa and Barry Taylor, from Wilmington, had eight trees in their garden condemned with Dutch Elm disease. Rather than getting them cut down, taken away and burnt, they asked friend and professional wood carver, Christine Kowal Post, to make three of them into 8ft (2.4m) high sculptures.
