Hi folks. Just a little infomation, because I did not know about it until lately, so I wanted to share.
If you see Trees or sign posts painted with a purple paint (see photo) look around for other trees marked, because this is the same as No trespassing signs.
Just wanted to share and see if anyone else knew about this.
Sorry about the poor quality of the photo.
