Default Galveston Oak Carvings

When hurricane Ike hit Galveston, 40,000 oak trees were lost. Many of these old stately trees had been in place for a hundred years. Many of the remaining stumps were turned into carvings. You can use the link below to see some of them. A friend sent a great powerpoint presentation on this but I was not able to link you to it. So... this will have to do. When the page comes up, you can scroll down to see some of the themed carvings. Enjoy.
