Creative and innovative sculptures crafted from trees that were damaged in the last hurricane. Walk through this area of the city and be transported back with the elegant architecture. Fabulous!

Found out about the sculptures on trip advisor. We downloaded the map and drove around Galveston looking for the sculptures. That was fun and the sculptures are beautiful. What a unique way to make something good come out of something so destructive.

My husband and I stayed at a Bed and Breakfast at the East End of Galveston where homes had these beautiful tree sculptures. We took a bike tour and really enjoyed not only the beauty of the trees but the historical homes as well. A great reminder of out of a hurricane called Ike came beauty from the damaged trees....

It was awesome to see all the detailed carvings of all the dead trees after hurricane ike, artists from all over came to town to carve their works of art on the snapped tree stumps throughout Galveston. If you take a tour you will get play by play on each statue.

Take an island tour that showcases the unique post-hurricane sculptures, otherwise you won't see them all and learn the history.

Hurricane IKE devastated Galveston's Trees and so a couple of Chainsaw Artists decided to improve the broken trees and turn them into an amazing array of Art Sculptures all over the island. You will be impressed! Jim Phillips is one of the amazing Artists and his work can also be seen in the Rene Wiley Gallery near the Strand!

Great event for summer day in A/C car😀 Houses & carvings were very interesting. Google & download map to take tour! If you like some local history & old houses this is the bomb😉.
