George Washington did not chop down these trees

The US has numerous kinds of historic trees that reflect the nation's history. Many communities have Liberty Trees, so designated because they were standing during important historical events, such as the American Revolution. The non-profit America Heritage Trees propagates seedlings and cuttings from trees from a large inventory of historic trees. This volunteer at Mount Vernon is working diligently to produce offspring for the last four trees surviving from George Washington's time at the estate.
