Tree Sculptures, Galveston

Inspirock Rating:
4.5/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web
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.
