The Oldest Tree On The White House Grounds Is Being Removed

The Oldest Tree On The White House Grounds Is Being Removed”

The south veneer of the White House will experience an emotional change this week: the notable Jackson Magnolia, a tree that has been set up since the 1800s, is planned to be chopped down and expelled.

First Lady Melania Trump made the decision to uproot the centuries-old tree after experts determined that it was beyond saving. "After reviewing the reports, she trusted that every effort had been made to preserve the historic tree and was concerned about the safety of visitors and members of the press who are often standing right in front of the tree during Marine One lifts". Last year, former President Barack Obama brought a seedling as a gift to the people of Cuba-which wasn't the first time replanted seedlings have been gifted. White House groundskeepers were prepared for the tree's demise, however, and offshoots of the original Jackson Magnolia have been growing nearby. It stands on the west side of the South Portico, opposite a second Magnolia that subsequently was planted for symmetry.

The plan calls for the offshoots, now about 8 to10 feet tall, to give rise to a new tree that will be planted in the same spot as the original Jackson Magnolia, CNN reported.

"The overall architecture and structure of the tree is greatly compromised and the tree is completely dependent on the artificial support", the report reads, according to CNN.

The document said: "Without the extensive cabling system, the tree would have fallen years ago. It is hard to predict when and how many more will fail", documents noted.

Jackson had insisted on planting a sprout from Rachel's favorite magnolia from the couple's Tennessee farm.

The official Jackson Magnolia has been out of sight for various notable occasions, from state landing services and Easter Egg Rolls, to a huge number of photograph operations, social and athletic exercises, and innumerable Marine One takeoffs and entries. Three trunks of the tree grew from the base-tangling together in a mess of shared bark.

Amusingly, the tree stands straightforwardly behind where the press is at present penned amid these events, now hazardously near the debilitated mammoth.

The tree, while heavily decayed, still blooms magnolia flowers in the spring and summer months and can be seen on the back of a twenty dollar bill. One of those trunks was removed leaving an exposed cavity that was filled with cement. By 1981, a large pole and cable system were installed and hold up the tree today. However, the Arboretum experts agree that the support system is no longer sustainable.

NPS assessed that the tree was decaying and a potential safety hazard.

There is not any more a sound establishment, and the upper part needs solid wood for cabling. We comprehend this is a notable tree, and the sum total of what measures have been utilized to spare it to this point in time.

"We believe eventually, the tree will fail", tree inspectors now write in their report.
