EDNEYVILLE, N.C. (AP) - A 15-foot tall, 15-foot wide Christmas tree made from old tires can now be seen by drivers passing through Edneyville along Chimney Rock Road.

The Times-News of Hendersonville reports (http://bit.ly/1PcyKJj) mechanic Conrad Estes constructed the “tree” last month after opening his garage, Automotive Repair and Shop. The display is draped with garland and Christmas lights from top to bottom, and is topped with its own “tire star.” It took Estes and two friends an entire day to stack up the tires.

Estes says people from as far as Michigan, Florida, Pennsylvania and New York have pulled over to his shop to take pictures. On Saturday, a group stopped by the tree and sang carols around it.

Estes said he plans to take to the tree down after Christmas.
