American Forests

You know the story of George Washington's run-in with a cherry tree (no, he didn't cut it down). But you probably don't know that you can plant your own sapling propagated from his Mount Vernon estate. The nonprofit conservation group American Forests sells offspring from some of the 2,000 historic trees it helps to protect. Offerings include a Martin Luther King live oak and a Gettysburg Address sycamore. Most are delivered as 4-foot saplings. About $40 at American Forests' Historic Tree Nursery
