I know they have hand outs for this at places around Galveston, but we didn't have one of those. We Googled to find the addresses and found a website that listed the address and sculpture. The list wasn't in order at all, so sculptures one the same street were not listed together which made seeing all on one street difficult.... More

The tree sculptures are amazing. How people can have this type of talent boggles my mind. We love to go down all the streets and see where we will find a new suprise. I am so impressed by the quality of the art. This is one of our favorite things to do in San Antonio

The tree sculptures are fascinating because they were created from the trees that were killed during hurricane Ike. Instead of removing the debris, the trees were carved into different shapes and characters. It was like a very fun scavenger hunt looking for the tree sculptures.

The tree sculptures are fun to see because they were created after hurricane Ike devastated galveston killing so many trees. Instead of removing the debris the trees were carved into wonderful characters. You can walk the route or hike it. Be sure to take your camera.

Every time we go to Galveston, we love to drive down the historic streets looking at the beautiful homes and finding all of the tree sculptures. Pick up a guide at the Chamber of Commerce to make sure you find all of them!
