The tree sculptures are pretty need. I love that they did something creative to them instead of just uproot them or chop them down after the storm
Beautiful artistry. Walking, biking or driving tour - wonderful carvings to see and all free. A wonderful way to see many historic homes along the way. Go to the Galveston visitors center in the historic Ashton Villa located at 24th and Broadway to get a free map of the sculptures.
It's nice that someone found a creative way to use the remains of the oak trees killed by Hurricane Ike, but after taking some friends around to look at the sculptures, I feel our time would have been better spent going on the ferry or touring Bishop's Palace.

This is something fun to do with the kids and best of all, was FREE! Several trees in one neighborhood were knocked down during a hurricane.

I got the email like everyone else but something looked out of place, like the photos had been photo shopped. I didn't believe these things were around Galveston. Well we took a little tour to find some of them and low and behold, they are there. Very cool works. Great for photos. Stop by if you have time.
The aftermath of Ike destroyed many of the old oak trees. Local artists have carved sculputre out of the stumps and remains of the stricken trees. Very attractive and immaginative.
