Trip Planner: USA / Texas / Texas Gulf Coast / Galveston Island / Galveston / Tree Sculptures
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.

Tree Sculptures reviews
Loved visiting all the sculptures. Some are obviously more refined than others, but all very imaginative and fun. And Toto too!

Absolutely Fantastic is the only way to describe this free, self-guided tour of old Town Galveston TX. The trees were devastated in 2008 by Huricane Ike. Artists were challenged to create beautiful art from broken trees. They did a great job. We took our dog on this (approximately) 3 mile tour from 8th to 20th Street and Postoffice to Broadway. The homes are survivors of many storms and are extremely well restored and maintained. Put on some comfortable shoes, park the car by the Galveston Gov building and enjoy the sights.
Wonderful walking tour of Galveston. Treasure hunt feeling as you search out the tree sculptures. Recommend getting map at welcome center before starting out.
