Tree Sculptures, Galveston

(600+ reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
Old tree growth that once shaded the town's Victorian homes was destroyed by Hurricane Ike. Tree Sculptures are a grassroots effort to resurrect the trees with art. Sculpted tree trunks are scattered around the neighborhood between new saplings. Many of the sculptures have a special significance for the people living in the Galveston community, such as Marcy Hanson's tree sculpture of an angel cradling a rabbit, which commemorates her bunny sanctuary. Stop by the Convention and Visitors Bureau first for a brochure that includes a list of the sculptures and a map of their locations. Put Tree Sculptures and other Galveston attractions into our Galveston vacation route planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • We'd never known about these on past visits to Galveston. Spent a wonderful afternoon vising them and taking pics of each one. Wonderful way to extend the life of an old dead tree!  more »
  • We chose to drive. I suppose you could walk - but it's several blocks. We ate lunch at Mosquito Cafe and got a map. It was fun trying to find them. You will need some sort of map.  more »
