Review of Tree Sculptures

Tree Sculptures
Ranked #5 of 106 things to do in Galveston
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 26, 2013

The brochure photos are better than what you can now see. In some cases they have not aged well or someone has inexpertly tried to touch them up. In some cases the owners have put plantings around the sculptures and the are partially obscured now. It's convenient that they are all on 3 neighboring streets. You can definitely tell there were 3 different carvers - some more detailed than others. We enjoyed seeing them at our leisure.

Absolutley AMAZING a must see if your in Galveston! It's great because you can stay in the comforts of you own automobile and see all the beautiful carvings that should be in a gallery! Awesome to see! A VERY VERY talented person to take a dying tree from hurricane Ike and make art from it!

They were all over town in the residential area. They were fun to hunt down and see the creativity that the families achieved.

It was interesting to see these sculptures carved from trees that had been destroyed during Hurricane Ike. The details on the sculptures were amazing.

Very good use of dead trees. We saw the trees on a Tour by Cool Tours which I reccomend. Catch it on the Seawall near the Pleasure Pier.
