Federal officials say the National Christmas Tree planted near the White House a year ago has died and is being removed.

The National Park Service says the Colorado blue spruce died of "transplant shock." It came from a tree farm in New Jersey last year and was planted on the Ellipse just south of the White House in March 2011.

This sounds like beginning of the plot in one of David Baldacci’s books, The Camel Club.

“Ram a coat hanger end into the hole and see if it comes out “clean”.”

Used to come out clean before Obama came to town.

I truly believe that something is a miss in this event for us. Here is a tree that is supposed to grow naturally . It has the title Christmas tree for this permanent planted tree. Christ 's name is in the title of Christmas.His birthday anniversary.

It was planted in 1978 then is destroyed by winds in febuary of 2011. Which in the same year we have an earthquake that cracks the Washington monument . A symbol of the first president. Obama who is now in the line of this successer from the very beginning. Hmmmmm

Also I had a Christmas style tree on my front lawn from the 1960's. I was a kid. It got just too big we had to cut it down. Three times as big as house in a tight surban area. Healthiest tree ever. I believe a blue spruce? Hmmmmmm

I believe we can get signs. I see too many without fill up these pages on this thread.

Didn't BO tell Sasha, when walking Bo, not to let him lift his leg on that tree? Especially when Bo is being fattened up for Memorial Day BBQ... Canine letting go of #1... and it may have some nasty stuff in it, and the tree was affected...

And a Festivus pole has a high strength-to-weight ratio!

I just found this funny news story.

FUBO has probably been sneaking out at night and peeing on it! Nothing grows where Bambi goes.

OMG! Are you wanting them to abort a tree? :-)

Or it couldn’t stand the thought of seeing MO squatting, bent over planting grown plants in her garden so that she can fake another Victory Garden for us po’ folk while she holds up traffic going to a farmer’s market, with lights flashing and an entire security detail to purchase arugula.

So, I’m a little confused.

This isn’t like Rockefeller Center, they have a tree planted in the ground that they use as the “Christmas tree”.

That’s mighty green of them.

I’ll have to try and notice if my town does that too, I mean the next time I drive by I’ll see if our Christmas tree is still there.

And, so, this is basically 2 Xmas trees we’ve lost with Obama in the WH? Pretty bad.

What about Mormons, they do the tree thing right?

I’m sorry, to me it isn’t Christmas without a tree. It’s the German in me.

You know what would be kind of cool, if Romney wins he’ll go to church at the fabulous looking Mormon cathedral that always looks so great when you come around the beltway.

My kid calls it the Wizard of Oz church.

Somehow it makes sense that even Christmas Trees can’t stand being around the Obamas

I guess it’s too late to say, “Bush’s fault”? Gotta blame it on somebody and nothing is ever Obama’s fault.

It’s a fifteen foot tree planted in the fall. It’s become one of life’s tragic inponderals. I’ve spent so much time staring at it, hoping for life, just the power of my mind should have produced something! ( I’m an old lady...if I ruled the world things would be a lot different!)
