Chainsaw artist Perry Carlson carved and applied stain to bald eagle carvings in downtown White Bear Lake last week, giving an alternative purpose to a tree that would otherwise have been removed. 

The Eagle carvings, located outside the Loftus family home in White Bear Lake, were commissioned as a tribute to Owen Loftus, who died in October of 2018 at the age of 15 due to complications from treatment for Leukemia. Owen was working toward achieving the rank of Eagle Scout and received an honorary designation.
