Tree Sculptures, Galveston

#10 of 107 in Things to do in Galveston
Landmark · Tourist Spot
Old tree growth that once shaded the town's Victorian homes was destroyed by Hurricane Ike. Tree Sculptures are a grassroots effort to resurrect the trees with art. Sculpted tree trunks are scattered around the neighborhood between new saplings. Many of the sculptures have a special significance for the people living in the Galveston community, such as Marcy Hanson's tree sculpture of an angel cradling a rabbit, which commemorates her bunny sanctuary. Stop by the Convention and Visitors Bureau first for a brochure that includes a list of the sculptures and a map of their locations.

  • Although the pamphlet needs to be updated as several of the sculptures are no longer in existence, the ones still around are amazing.  more »
  • We followed the map the discover all the sculptures. They were all so beautifully carved and each had a story. I gave a program about them to a ladies' group and they were fascinated.  more »
