    Well the tree cant make its own decisions and is a pretty important part of america. It couldnt cost more than like.... 4000 bricks to save this tree?

    Nothing is sacred. I would build a stone support for it. A wall to keep the tree up. This tree is 200 years old!!! I guess nothing is sacred....
    Why don't you go adopt the tree once they remove it and see what you can do for it?

    not every tree is destined to live forever

    nature even catches up to white house trees

    maybe they can replace with something else that is pretty and will last 100-200 years from now

    Wood from the tree will be preserved, Grisham added. The First Lady has also requested that its seedlings be maintained in the event that a new Magnolia tree can be planted in the same area.

    Now if this had been Michelle Obama making the same decision, would you honestly be saying "nothing is sacred?"
    Oh common we have hydroponic wizards that can turn tomatos into watermelons. Thats cool that she wants to keep its lineage though. Im a libertarian so that gives me the freedom to antagonize the LEFT AND THE RIGHT.

    We should all know by now that nothing CNN says should be considered news or the truth until it checks out.

    Right. Far longer than our country will be standing.

    As a nation we own millions of trees a lot older than that. Hell, there are trees older than that in just DC. It ain’t Methusala.
