Idyllwild’s newest tree monument was officially unveiled late last November after much anticipation. The design was selected by community vote. Idyllwild artist David Roy used a chainsaw to carve the entire piece, including fine detail work. The cedar wood sculpture incorporates elements of Idyllwild’s history and Native American influence. Roy is also a world-class airbrush artists who used to work as a prop designer for Disney Studios. It makes a great family photo op. Have your photographer cross the street to get the best view of the monument with Tahquitz Rock in the background. Photo: Halie Johnson
