It's been there since Andrew Jackson was in the White House. He planted it as a seedling and now it has to be removed because it's diseased and crumbling. Nothing lasts forever, does it?

Actually, the WH tree was not planted as seedling. It was a cutting from a tree that was on his farm.

And the WH tree has had cuttings made from it, and one of those cuttings will be planted at the WH.

Plants are really cool that way. An individual won't last indefinitely, but its clones can be carried on just about forever.

that tree saw a lot of history, it's going to be sad to have to lose it, but as jacqueg points out, it won't be lost entirely.

is sad to me. Jackson loved Rachel very deeply.

It is said he even planted trees on their farm/plantation leading up to the door in the shape of her guitar. so he carried a piece of that tree with him as he went to the White House as she was unable to accompany him (in death). Romantic

But the tree was past its life span and it is kind to replace it with an off shoot or sprig or whatever.
