asking for opinions on France. :)

By the way, thanks a lot, the oak tree died.

France's president Emmanuel Macron gifted America with an Oak tree from France to symbolize unity between the 2 countries. He and president Trump planted it together on the white house
lawn in April 2018. The tree died this year and Macron said he will send Trump a new tree from the
Belleau Woods in Northern France, where 1,800 American soldiers died in battle during WWI.

A brand new tree....or only slightly used?

Better hope the Chinese Prez don't show up one day with a tallow tree........Washington DC will never be the same again.

Sonny Perdue.
The department of Agriculture is in charge of lawn and landscaping for the White House.
Guess they thought a french oak would prefer dry white wines rather than water.

One of my favorite pieces of advice doled out on CT :roll: ;-)
I must have missed the thread where this occurred. Few years back, seemed like this was being encouraged 1 out of 3 threads. Clearly, very few are taking the advice based on Ranchers activity level.
