Go to the Visitor's Center and get a map. Look through it before you begin. There are several places where trees are in the backyard, and you don't want to look like an idiot stopped in the middle of the street looking for a tree.

Loved using a map and walking through the neighborhood to view the tree sculptures. So glad someone had the idea rather than just tearing down the damaged trees. Love the exploring around each corner and the beautiful historic homes.

Driving around and hunting each one was fun. Some have been taken care of and most were not. Still interesting to drive around and find them. Some are very beautiful.

You can take a relaxing stroll through the homes and look at this wonderful tree sculptures. We follow up the map and drive down the streets taking pictures and having a good time.

If you want a chance to get out and walk and learn something about the history of Galveston, this is it. Stately homes mingle with the art sculptures of the trees. Beautiful walk, but can also be done by car.

Take your time. Get a map from the Chamber of Commerce. Park and take photos up close. Most are in front yards and are easy to spot.

Only seen a couple sculptures but they were beautiful. We were so tired that a nap trumped the rest of the sculptures. It was definitely a good way to spend the time in between adventures

Great use of the trees killed in the last big hurricane, sculptures are refreshing use of the trees and are worth the effort to see them.

Labor Day weekend my friend Kelly and I took the Treasure Island Tours. While learning history about Galveston we saw several of the tree sculptures that were made from 100+ year old trees that were damaged during Hurricane Ike in 2008. Although we didn't get to see all of the tree sculptures it was amazing to see the ones we... More

In September 2008, Galveston was hit by a major hurricane and the national financial crisis. The hurricane was soon off the national radar because of the financial crisis even though it was as destructive as Katrina. Along with lives and homes, hurricane Ike destroyed thousands of 100 year old oak trees. Galveston is also home to the largest population of... More
