This method of painting the bottom of the trees is quite old. But have you ever thought about why they are painted red and white?
These are the reasons why trees are painted red and white
1. It indicates that ‘this tree is under the protection of forest department’ and cannot be harvested and chopped off.
2. They are painted red and white so that, these trees can be easily seen in the darkness of the night.
3. To avoid termites and insects. These insects hollow out any tree from inside but the paint does not allow them to do so it acts as an insect resistant.
4. Paint increases the lifespan of the trees. Cracks occur in the trees due to which the trees start becoming weak and the paint helps in binding.
