Hurricane Ike came ashore on September 13th, 2008, covering Galveston Island with eight to ten feet of saltwater storm surge. As the water receded, left behind was a scene of fading splendor. The Island lost an estimated 41,000 trees.

But the tree lovers of Galveston, lead by Donna Leibbert, (who I am proud to call a very dear friend) came up with a creative way to recycle and pay homage to these magnificent structures. So far, over 20 trees have been carved in place, throughout Galveston. The posters offer a sampling of these remarkable creations of Mother Nature and man.
