The devastating windstorm that whipped through the San Gabriel Valley in 2011 downed trees and caused power outages. The winds also destroyed 235 trees and harmed 1,000 more at the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden. The following year, the arboretum invited artists to turn the toppled trees into sculpture, furniture, bowls, games, jewelry and other one-of-a-kind of pieces for its exhibit "Forces of Nature." Since then, more trees on the property, including a 150-year-old Tasmanian blue gum, have been ravaged by drought and disease. For the arboretum's follow-up display, "Forces of Nature II," more than 100 artists once again transform the damaged trees into works of art.
