Citizens of Portland, Maine, were treated to an unusual sight on Monday when a man decided to stand in the middle of the road dressed as a tree.


Police first warned the man, identified as 30-year-old Asher Woodward, to move off the road, WCSH6 reported.


However, the walking tree was eventually escorted off the road.

He did not respond to any questions. A friend tells us he was studying the city's traffic patterns.

After his first warning, Woodward was arrested for blocking traffic, WCSH6 reported.


Authorities said that Woodward was trying to see how he could affect "people's natural choreography."
