Katrina Tree sculptures. Katrina Tree Sculptures

When Hurricane Katrina came through Biloxi, it took down a lot of trees leaving only the trunks. The trunks were carved into various sculptures. Can be seen along Highway 90 beginning at the lighthouse.

Katrina Catastrophe Trees

Wood sculptor Marlin Miller is carving the last of his Katrina Trees. He began in 2007, chiseling and chainsawing the trunks of standing oak and cypress trees killed by Hurricane Katrina into marine-themed art. With over 50 completed, he decided that his last tree would be the only one not on the Mississippi Gulf Coast; it's across the state line in Fairhope, Alabama. The final sculpture stands over 30 feet tall, and features seagulls flying above dolphins chasing a school of fish.
