This is a must see if you come to Galveston. This is an example of making lemonade out of the lemons you are dealt. Their beautiful live oaks were devastated by the hurricane and they turned them into beautiful works of art. Go to the...More

Great to see these trees salvaged into something beautiful. There is a really nice pamphlet online showing where the trees are. Talented artists.

These sculptures are beautiful! My mother and I loved not only finding the sculptures but also looking at the historic homes in Galveston! Hunting for these sculptures makes for a fun afternoon!

The week my husband and I saw the sculptures the Houston Chronicle had a map in the Zest section. Maybe the Galveston Chamber of Commerce has a map.

This site doesn't alow links to PD files, so google Galveston tree walking tours and do it from there. There are also free guides at most hotels, restaurants and gift shops.
