Trees cannot walk. This is an indisputable fact. But performance artists dressed as trees can, and one Portland performance artist set out to prove it.

Asher Woodworth was arrested after dressing up as a pine tree and walking into traffic. He was given a warning by police, but continued to walk into the street in his tree outfit, blocking traffic at a busy intersection.

Police Woodworth's motivation was to see how people would react to seeing a tree walking around town and how he might impact "people's natural choreography."
