In celebration of Arbor Day, April 27, 2012, at Arlington National Cemetery, Va., the last of five post oak saplings "born" from the acorns of the felled 220-year old "Grand Arlington Oak" is planted by (left to right) Scott Steen, CEO American Forests; Katherine Hammack, assistant secretary of the Army for Installations, Energy and Environment; and, Stephen Van Hoven, Arlington National Cemetery urban forester. The "mother" tree was felled by Hurricane Irene last August.
