You remember that French President Emmanuel Macron visited US President Donald Trump at the White House last week.

To celebrate the special relationship between the United States and France during that state visit, the two Presidents planted a tree on the grounds of the White House.

But now the oak sapling is gone - at least temporarily.

White House photographers noticed the tree was gone days after it had been planted. Mystery ensued.

In fact, the tree, from Belleau Wood in France where almost 2,000 American soldiers died in a World War One battle, had been dug up not long after it was planted.

It was put in quarantine, according to U.S. and French officials.

But what could be the problem? Well, according to the officials, parasites on the tree could spread to others on the White House property.

“It was actually a special favor from Trump to France to be able to plant the tree the day of the president’s visit,” an official from Macron’s office said.

“Since then, it has returned to quarantine and will soon be replanted in the White House gardens,” the official said, adding: “Don’t worry, the tree is doing very well.”
