David Zimmerman lives with his girlfriend at their home at 2546 Emerald Ridge Loop.
Zimmerman says he thought it would be cool to show people what could happen when a stubborn husband refuses to get the right sized tree and insist on a giant one instead, but his tree isn't really over-sized. Zimmerman placed a nine-foot tree inside his living room, then placed a small, 3-foot tree on the rooftop.
He says he then got pieces of wood and shingles and placed them strategically around the small tree to make it look like it was bursting through the roof.
Zimmerman's neighbors say they were fooled the first time they saw it, and actually thought it was going through his roof.
