Over the years I’ve come across many trees that are painted blue and often wondered why. The other day I spotted another one so decided to actually look into it.
Apparently it started in Western Australia and encourages people to choose a dead tree that needs a “blue lease on life” and paint it in memory of a friend who lost their life to depression or had battled the illness.
There is a much longer story on The Blue Tree Project and its aim is to help people start talking openly about feeling blue.
