Jake Bleiberg at the Bangor Daily News caught up with the newly famous "tree dude," the guy who blocked traffic in downtown Portland on Monday dressed like a tree and got arrested doing it.

In his interview with the Bangor Daily News, artist Asher Woodworth, 30, talks about his "magical" intentions, and that he pulled the stunt in the name of Art.

Even Maine's favorite PD's facebook page (The Bangor PD) posted a status about the arrest this morning, praising their brothers in blue down here in the big city.
