First lady Melania Trump was joined by descendants of past presidents Monday as she helped plant a sapling from an Eisenhower-era oak tree on the south grounds of the White House.
The 12-to-14-foot sapling came from the original Eisenhower oak that towers over an East Wing garden created by former first lady Jacqueline Kennedy. It replaces a tree that was felled during a March windstorm and was removed by groundskeepers.
The article goes on to state the following:
The first lady was assisted in the planting by Mary Jean Eisenhower, a granddaughter of the 34th president, and Richard Emory Gatchell, Jr., a fifth-generation grandson of President James Monroe.
Other descendants of presidents, in town for a summit organized by the White House Historical Association, and board members of the organization, also attended the brief ceremonial planting under a hot late-August sun.
“We’re honored to make a place here for another historical monument,” Mrs. Trump said. “It’s a very special day.”
