Perhaps this is just Lynch's shorthand for rural life?  I had
chalked up all the tree imagery in Blue Velvet to humor/emphasizing
rural setting.  (At the sound of the falling tree....)

We see a lot of trees, lumber, sawmill, log lady, deer heads, antlers,
and Big Ed's Gas Farm.  Anyone care to read in something deep and
meaningful into either the antlers or the wood?  (how about the wood
in Blue Velvet?)  Like I said, I think it's just there to remind us
visually that we aren't in New York.
