Business owner plants tree in pothole

JACKSON, Tenn. — It’s not something you see every day — a sapling planted in the middle of a road. ┬áBut one Jackson businesswoman said after repeatedly fixing a pothole in front of her store, she decided to take a different approach.

The owner of Special Effects Design said she’s the one who planted the tree in the middle of Federal Drive, a privately-owned road, which is just off Carriage House Drive in north Jackson.

She said she planted the tree as a way to warn her customers of the pothole so they won’t damage their vehicles. A representative of the city of Jackson said that it is their policy not to repair privately-owned streets.
