The Galilee Centre’s Royal Oak tree was planted in 1860 by the then 19-year old Prince Edward of Wales (who later grew up to become Edward VII) during a stop on his tour through Canada.
Recently, a large limb fell from this historic tree and was broken into several pieces.
To ensure that these fallen pieces of history do not go to waste, the Galilee Centre preserved the wood and reached out to the Valley Carver.
Pictured here are just a few of the unique artisanal carvings that have been produced.
Just in time for the holiday season, these carvings are available for purchase in the Main Office and are sure to bring character and a piece of history to your home.
