If you’ve ever walked past a house, you might have noticed a fence post or a tree with a purple stripe and wondered what it could mean.


This purple stripe isn’t just a random decoration; it carries an important message that isn’t very welcoming.

In some states, a new rule has been introduced to prevent trespassing on private property.

Instead of traditional signs saying „No Trespassing,” it’s now enough to paint a purple stripe on a tree or fence post.

This measure aims to make the message clearer, as signs can fade over time.

Additionally, attaching signs and driving in nails or screws can harm trees.

Using purple has the advantage of being noticeable in nature and attracting people’s attention.

However, there are also other colors that can be similarly used.
