Display Closed Branches with a Different Shape

Closed and "Forgotten" Branches look exactly the same in Source Tree, Similar Software Changes the shape of closed branches (e.g. rectangle instead of round). Is there a setting to make closed branches more identifiable visually in Source Tree?

What is a closed branch in git in your eyes? git does not support the concept of "closing branches" natively. Closing a not-anymore-needed branch in git is mostly done by tagging the HEAD of the branch and deleting the branch. The branch can be resurrected (if needed) via creating a new branch on the tag. As there is no "close branch" in git, there is probably no counterpart in SourceTree.

I don't know mercurial - so I cannot speak about it ...
