New faces have joined the St. Simons Island community - but not in the way you might think. Five new Tree Spirits have appeared in the trunks and branches of majestic live oaks, joining many other spirits scattered around the island. Look for these unique faces on a magical scavenger hunt across St. Simons Island.

These celebrated additions join an artistic legacy and were carved by Devon Jennings, son of original Tree Spirit artist Keith Jennings. Each carving is unique and represents the inner soul of each tree, located in arborist-approved places on the trees. Legend whispers that the faces are those of lost sailors who passed at sea, on boats made from St. Simons Island oaks.
