If you’ve ever walked past a house, you might have seen a fence post or a tree with a purple stripe.If that’s the case, you’ve probably scratched your head and wondered what it could mean.

In several states, a new rule has been introduced to prevent people from trespassing onto private property. It’s no longer necessary to put up metal or plastic signs saying « No Trespassing. »

Now, it’s enough to paint a purple line on a tree or a post. It makes sense to make the message more visible, as signs fade over time and become hard to read.

Driving a nail or screw into a tree can also damage it and cause harm.It’s not necessary to use words to tell people to stay away from a property; painting a fence post purple does that for you.


A sign can be stolen or lost over time, but the purple color remains stable and conveys a clear message much longer. Why is purple used?Not only does purple stand out in nature, but people are also drawn to it because it’s so different from the other colors.
