A new sculpture is about to be unveiled in Christchurch. 

Artist Regan Gentry today craned in the final pieces for his Wood from the Trees sculpture being installed on the corner of High and Tuam streets. 

The artwork features three life-size, sculptural rimu trees made of timber reclaimed from demolished Christchurch homes. 

Christchurch business owner Jo Blair commissioned the sculpture, which will be officially unveiled on Friday. 

Gentry also created the Flour Power sculpture on the corner of High and Hereford streets in 2008.
