I found the Tree Sculpture tour online, so my husband and I hunted them down. We were amazed at how intricate they were - and how beautiful the old neighborhood is. What a valiant effort to turn ashes into beauty!

Many sculpted trees damaged from Hurricane Ike have been transformed into works of art. Take your camera and take the tour!!

What a treat !!! The tree sculptures which are all over the historic area are a must. The artists who came to Galveston to work on the dead trees destroyed by Hurricane Ike has turned a tragedy into something wonderful. Each tree is unique and well worth seeing. I often bring my visitors to see the trees as they are... More

As stated in the title, we didn't do a group tour. We got a map and drove ourselves around. It got boring after awhile. We didn't finish the tour.

Amazing way to turn a disaster into an artistic triumph!! The self-guided tour was amazing and some of the statues could have been found in an expensive art gallery. Great tour!

Went on the historic galveston tour. The tree sculptures were apart of the tour. Really neat! You don't have to be on a tour to see them you can drive around if you have an idea of where they are.

We enjoyed driving around and photographing the various sculptures made from hurricane damaged trees. Also, this quick tour takes you through some of the most beautiful houses in Galveston. Worth 30 minutes.

We took the tram from the seawall. It was called a train. We learned many interesting facts about Galveston. We had particularly wanted to see the carved trees and it was a good way to do that. The carvings are really good.

Searching for and seeing these wonderful sculptures among the historic houses of Galveston was a wonderful treat! The sculptures reflect the spirit and resourcefulness of this great city. Do not understand how anyone could rate this other than excellent. I hope I never have the misfortune to have an adult traveling companion who would not appreciate the spirit of and... More
