At Arlington National Cemetery, Va., a newly planted post oak sapling is dwarfed by its towering elders in the background. In celebration of Arbor Day, five saplings and descendants of the 220-year old "Grand Arlington Oak" were donated to the cemetery by non-profit American Forests April 27, 2012. The "mother" tree was felled by Hurricane Irene last August.
