Sacramento is known as the “City of Trees” but in Sacramento County, we have more than four million trees.
But most of us probably take our green landscape for granted. That’s why artists are changing the look of 13th Street between J and K Streets. They are painting trees electric blue in an effort to bring awareness to deforestation.
Australian artist Konstantin Dimopoulos from Australia is heading up this movement. He wants people to think green when they see blue.
The paint is non-toxic and will wash off over the next six months but during that time, Dimopoulos hopes people notice the trees and decide to plant some at home or even find ways to use less paper in their lives
If you would like to help paint the trees just show up in downtown Sacramento now through Friday, Oct. 12 any time after 9 a.m.
