Massachusetts Man Plants Christmas Trees In Potholes



A Massachusetts man fed up with local potholes decided to take matters into his own hands by planting tiny Christmas trees in the holes on a busy road. Kevin Martin said his plan began when he was on his way to pick up dinner in North Attleborough and hit a series of potholes, leaving him with all four of his tires flattened. Martin said he had previously complained to the town and state governments about the potholes, but no action was ever taken. "I needed to make sure that it got fixed one way or another. I know that I'm not the only person who's gotten flat tires from that area,” said Martin. He went to Home Depot and bought some potting soil and some small Christmas trees and planted the them in the potholes on his way to work the next morning. "Looks like someone is getting into the Christmas spirit early...guess that's one way to fill pot holes,” the North Attleborough Police Department wrote in a since-deleted Facebook post. Martin’s gamble appears to have paid off, as the trees were removed and the potholes were filled.
