Boyd Blog Draws Galveston Stump Map, Calls for Houston Tree Carvers

New-car owner and art blogger Robert Boyd has decided to  break in his wheels by cruising Galveston and  compiling an online map of  dozens of stump carvings, leftover Ike-killed trees transformed into folk art by a citywide initiative.  He  brought a camera along for the ride, and catalogues a few choice examples, suggesting that, with ten percent of Houston’s 660 million trees killed by last summer’s intense heat and extreme drought, we’ll be needing a Texas-sized crew of tree carvers here, too.
