LAist Featured Photos pool photog Susan Sabo (aka smalldogs) nabbed this fantastic shot in Long Beach of a solitary holiday tree planted guerrilla gardening-style in the median. She explains:

i just noticed this tiny tree that someone planted on this divider. it looks like someone in the neighborhood got a live tree for xmas, then went out and planted it when they were done with it. i think that fucking rocks! i hope the city doesn't come and dig it up and throw it away, but i'm sure it's only a matter of time before they do.

Completely agreed. Maybe this one tree can be the Christmas gift that keeps on giving.Photo by smalldogs via the LAist Featured Photos pool on Flickr
