The tree sculptures are a must see while in Galveston!!! They are beautiful and have meaning behind them. They are best seen on a tour! I would highly recommend seeing them on a Segway tour by SegCity!

I enjoyed driving through the city looking for the tree sculptures. I think my favorite one is at the fire station where they have a tall fire hydrant with water flowing out of it.

This is a fun, self-guided tour. After Ike hit in 2008, there were many dead trees, instead of tearing them out, they were turned into art... Each one has a different story. Neat to see, a bit of a hunt for a few of the...More

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.
