Blue trees are in Houston!

blue trees

Houston is amazing.

As a response to the loss of millions of trees during the drought of 2011 and the aftermath of Hurricane Ike, Konstantin Dimopoulos, has brought his living outdoor project to Houston. The project itself consist of “panting” the local trees around Houston a slightly dark tint of blue to show that a small change within are daily lives can also be a big one… though the paint it self isn’t really paint at all, just water and ultramarine mineral pigment. The “paint” doesn’t harm the tree, and since blue isn’t a known color for any trees it gives it a nice pop.

Check out where you can see the trees around town here. Take advantage of this picnic weather and head to Galveston, as well!
