But it was never replanted: the tree died during quarantine, a diplomatic source told Agence France-Presse.
The oak tree was first planted in the garden of the White House a year ago. The Macrons presented the Trumps with a tree meant to embody the close ties between their respective countries, and the foursome planted it on the White House lawn with gold-toned shovels in a photo op created to highlight Franco-American unity.
But a few days later the tree was removed and placed in quarantine according to mandatory procedure for importing living organisms into the United States.
The oak that sprouted on battlegrounds during World War I was a gift from Macron as a reminder of the "ties that bind" the nations.

Macron is at odds over the American's unilateralist approach to trade, climate change and a nuclear deal with Iran.
