"I think I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree............
....................Poems were made
by fools like me
But only God can make a tree."
There may be poems about symmetries of trees too, but as an artist I have always marvelled at their awesome symmetry which I am sure contributes to their beauty.
There are spectacular cases of bilateral symmetry in nature, like the Traveller's Palm Trees of Singapore. As per legend, the orientation of the trees in a East-West direction, and the water stored at the base of the leaves were great resources for thirsty and tired travellers.
A Ficus tree shows a unique radial symmetry. Which means you could cut the tree in half at different angles, but as long as you cut through the center, the two halves would be identical.
With such a great "Form" bestowed by nature, dead trees are a "thing of beauty" and "a joy forever" too. You feel sad looking at a dead tree in the urban environment, choked as they are with all the buildings around. Often the footpath around a tree is constructed and does not allow the roots to breathe, cables of all kinds mercilessly cut through the branches of the tree; banners, and electric lights are strung across, large vehicles brush past unmindfully, and people nail wooden signages to the trunk casually, not pausing to wonder if the tree was still alive!
All this for trees that ask little of us, purify our air, beautifies the surroundings, add moisture to the air; and all parts of the tree like its leaves, twigs, seeds, fruits, and even dead stumps are all useful.
The artist Curtis Killorn in Colorado has been painting dead trees in spectacular colours. He says he paints them so that they don't blend into the live trees around them, and people notice how beautiful they still are.
Three young women in Mumbai with a mind of their own, similarly started painting dead trees in Mumbai, for a different reason. They wanted to draw attention to the number of trees which had been dying on the streets of Mumbai due to lack of care, and instead of providing shade and shelter to the citizens, were hardly visible with the city rubble and hustle-bustle. The group called "Rastaa Chaap" (meaning "Street Wanderer", literally) has painted dead trees in bright colours to draw the attention of citizens and municipality authorities, to these dead trees, which would otherwise have been quite invisible.
Here are some pics.
Some celebrity participants (Twinkle Khanna) and funds from NGOs and corporates have helped the group. They plan to take the movement to other cities. And of course, hope that this will launch public awareness, funds and efforts to save the live trees!

Here’s Why 14 Women Including Twinkle Khanna Are Painting Dead Trees in Mumbai
If you happen to take a walk around Juhu in Mumbai one of these days, some vibrant and colourful trees will welcome you – trees that are no longer alive but have been painted in beautiful colours and designs. Meet the group behind this makeover.
“We are a voluntary group of women who have chosen to care for the environment and help save trees. Instead of complaining and whining about authorities not doing their job, we are looking for ways to assist them in achieving their goals,” says 48-year-old Neelu Virk, a resident of Mumbai.
Neelu is a member of Raasta Chaap, a group of 14 women who have come together for one amazing reason – to spread awareness about the dying rain trees in Mumbai and the deteriorating condition of the environment.
Today, they can be seen at different places in the city, armed with paint brushes and shovels – painting dead trees, planting new ones, and preserving those that need to be taken care of.
It all began in May 2015 when some of these women connected with each other on social media. All of them had something or the other in common – they we were either alumni of the same college or were living in the same locality.
“That was when we came across some pictures of street art in Juhu. Sabishi, a member of the group, had shared them on Facebook. They were fabulous and Sabishi suggested we should go for a walk to explore the area. The paintings fascinated us and we wanted to do something similar. Very soon, Saijal posted another picture of painted dead trees. That inspired everybody and we thought – why don’t we do that,” recalls Neelu, who is a communication analyst.
The group had come across many dead trees during their walk around Juhu and felt the need to draw people’s attention towards them.
After getting the required permission from the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), they started by painting a few trees outside the Jamnabai Narsee High School. After that they painted some outside the Juhu Vile Parle Gymkhana Club.
“The greatest thing about Raasta Chaap is that there are some of women in the group who are very artistically inclined. They don’t just want to paint the trees in solid colours but want to work on them for 3-4 days, almost like art projects. They even repaint some trees if they are not satisfied with the designs. Each one of them is so passionately involved and the entire project is so personal to them that the end results are always beautiful,” says Neelu.
Raasta Chaap was not started with any fixed agenda; it evolved in a very organic manner. After beginning with painting, the team decided they should plant two trees for every dead tree they come across. And then, on giving further thought to what would happen to the trees once they were planted, they started preserving them using fertilisers and pesticides.
Today, they have a team of 15 volunteers, other than the 14 members in the core group. “We are just environment enthusiasts and nature lovers. None of us has a background in horticulture or anything like that. So we are learning along the way,” Neelu points out. They have been interacting with Vanashakti, a Mumbai-based NGO working on the environment, and they get a lot of information about the basics of planting and preserving trees from them. They are also trying to reach out to people who can help in the process of preserving these trees. So there are some individuals who agree to take care of one or two trees in their neighbourhoods, some offer to spray pesticides in a locality near them at regular intervals, and then there are some organizations that offer to contribute fertilisers at cheap rates.
The team also has some very dedicated women who do not prefer to wait for any individual or authority but believe in doing things themselves.
“There is always a problem when it comes to watering the trees. But one of the group members, Archana, has taken this responsibility upon herself and she carries 20 litres of water in her car everyday – riding around the city and watering the plants whenever she can,” says Neelu.
Additionally, the group has put up many boards with messages like ‘I am thirsty. Can you give me water?’ or ‘If you give me water, I will give you oxygen.’ They have especially placed these messages around schools because many children empty their water bottles when they walk out in the evening.
Members of Raasta Chaap coordinate and communicate with the help of a WhatsApp group. Currently, they don’t have permission to plant trees everywhere, so they usually plant and paint in Juhu, and also preserve some trees in the Khar and Bandra areas. They initiated the project with their own funds but, over time, have started getting volunteers who contribute the required money and choose to paint the trees themselves.
So far, the team has painted around 20 trees in Juhu.
Two members of the group, Shirley and Merylin, are active ALM (Advanced Locality Management) members so they make it easy for the team to get permissions from the BMC. All the women are working professionals in the age group of 40-50 years.
Recently, Bollywood actress Twinkle Khanna also joined the core team as she was interested the work they are doing. The other members include – Archana Shroff, Shaheen Jaffer, Sabishi Shankar, Shirley Singh, Merylin Joseph, Priya Bhimani, Saijal Goenka, Rupali Shah, Shaguna Khatri, Sonal Pal, Neelu Virk, Anuradha Jasani, and Jugnu Shah.
From being dead stumps that nobody used to notice or be aware of, the newly painted trees of Juhu have turned into selfie spots.
And while some are happy about how the trees have brightened the city, there are others who feel disturbed by the sad reality that there are so many dead trees they didn’t even notice for so long.
“The bottom line is that we have created awareness. Art should disturb the comfortable and comfort the disturbed. That is what we have done,” concludes Neelu.
The literal meaning of Raasta Chaap in English is ‘wanderer,’ but the word ‘chaap’ also means ‘mark.’ And that is what the team is doing – leaving a mark of awareness in the hearts and minds of people so they can help save the environment in their own way.
Here is a look at some more of their work:

7 Ways to Give New Life to Dead Trees in Your Backyard
Growing up, the property neighboring me had a young pear tree that served many functions to the neighborhood kids.
In the heat of summer it provided us with shade, it acted as our third base during softball games, and it gave us neighborhood fruit that we'd proudly carry in our shirts home to our mothers. On summer evenings the lowest branch, which broke during an attempt to create a swing, held the extension cord and single light bulb that illuminated rowdy night games of Loteria (a card game similar to Bingo) that could make a kid rich.
That particular pear tree was the center of life for many of the kids I grew up with. When the new owners of the property paved over the yard to create a parking lot I was happy to see that the tree had been spared. Then one day, a new set of owners cut the tree down entirely to keep the tree's fruit from damaging the hoods of the cars parked below it.
The day I noticed the tree was gone I was devastated. I wished I had been able to save a piece of it. Perhaps made a picture frame, coat rack, something-anything-that would honor the tree that gave us so much.
Unfortunately, that wasn't an option, but if you lose a tree in your landscape here are seven ways you can give it new life and preserve some of the memories you associate with it.
1. Painting Dead Trees
A couple colors of paint and a brush can turn a sad-looking dead tree into an artistic statement in your landscape. This is an example of dead trees that were used to create winter interest a year ago along Chicago's Lake Shore Drive.
You don't have to be Norm Abram to create seating around your garden and patio from tree stumps and pieces of the trunk. Specimens can be sanded and varnished to create decorative and functional pieces indoors. Small branches can be cut to decorate indoor furniture, like this table.
3. Create a Bee Habitat
With a handful of drill bits, a power tool, and a few minutes of your time, you can turn branches into native bee hotels in your garden.
Native bees don't get as much attention as their European cousins, but they are just as much under threat and are equally important pollinators.
4. Carve Out Garden Paths
A few years ago an exhibit at the Chicago Flower & Garden Show utilized sections of a trunk to create a garden path.
"Those got a lot of attention," recalls Brian Houck, Director of Horticulture at the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago. "There was a lot of talk about whether they were a good idea because they'll decompose and could be slippery."
Years later and I still want to remove the concrete pavers and replace them with wooden ones.
5. Install Trellises and Fencing
Young branches and stems make nice decorative fences and trellising for training young plants and vines to grow upright.
Here's a nice example of trellis created out of branches by a gardening friend.
6. Create Raised Beds, Borders, and Planters
Trunks can be laid on their side to create borders for your garden beds and even the walls of raised beds. My favorite Thai restaurant in Chicago turned a number of stumps into planters. You can plant right inside rotted out stumps or hollow them out to hold pots that you can change out throughout the season.
The easiest and perhaps the most boring--if I'm being honest--way of upcycling a dead tree is to turn the tree into mulch that can help conserve the use of water in the garden.
Just because a tree dies doesn't mean we have to discard it. Think of ways that you can give your tree a new life in your home and garden if it has sentimental meaning to you.
However: Don't repurpose dead trees in your garden if they have been felled by diseases or pests, like the Emerald Ash Borer, and always wear protective clothing and eyewear when using tools.
