Gangland, USA

This is what I found when I stepped outside for a walk Saturday morning. I mean, tagging is bad enough... but a tree!! How tacky and just totally awful it that? A big, beautiful, nice, old tree.

This kind of stuff really, really makes me mad.


  1. You're so right. That's seriously uncool. Grrrrrrrrrrr.

  2. Is there anything you can do to get paint off of bark besides just striping the bark? Tagging a tree, morons.

    At my old place we used to get tagged on the side of the house all the time. There was this little alley that ran between my place and the place next door - a perfect spot for taggers. The trick to stopping them was quickly painting over it. At first I thought this wouldn't work, that the taggers would just come back and do it again. But it did. The house on the other side was covered in spary paint, but ours rarely got tagged, maybe once a year. They just stopped trying and went for an easier mark.

    Good luck
