President Obama Digs the White House

Over 40 different trees on the White House grounds have been planted by various presidents and first ladies over the years. For your arboreal delight, see the most recent addition of a littleleaf linden to the north grounds, in a spot that was originally designated by the Olmsted brothers in their landscape plan of 1935.
