Tree planted inside pothole in Northville neighborhood with note that reads, 'Fix Damn Potholes'

NORTHVILLE, Mich. (WXYZ) - Fed up neighbors in one Northville community are bringing attention to potholes in a creative way. 

The photo was taken on Sunnydale Lane by a woman visiting her sister from out of town. It shows a tree planted inside of a sizable pothole in the middle of the street.

On the tree are notes that read, "Fix Damn Potholes" and "I'm not drunk driving, I'm dodging potholes."

The photo was taken by Morgan Benedict, who says she only saw one pothole planted tree in the neighborhood, which is near Winchester Elementary School.
