Federal officials say the National Christmas Tree planted near the White House a year ago has died and is being removed.
The National Park Service says the Colorado blue spruce died of "transplant shock." It came from a tree farm in New Jersey last year and was planted on the Ellipse just south of the White House in March 2011.

I think the National Christmas Trees are donated by private individuals, but the US Park Service “supervises” digging, transport and installation. That was the problem, I’d bet.
Suddenly, I have a craving for a Triple White Castle® Cheeseburger...
It’s almost been 3 1/2 years.
Obama lied, Christmas tree died.
If ONLY Americants had been willing to pay the X-mas tree tax Obama imposed, this tragedy COULD have been avoided.
Let’s see, most people will read about this on May 6, 6 months before the elections on Nov 6th.
Rich Republicans dood it with their tea-bagging and mean-spirited global warming rays. George Washington’s hatchet was used to chop its roots./s
Possibly is Obummer’s fault. “Transplant shock” probably means that the people who did the transplant did it incompetently. Obama has fostered a culture where competence is less important than being the right color and having the right connections.
Things that go bump in the night.
Oh, that's right - the .gov gunthugs will just jam a piece in our faces and take the money...
Keep voting, suckers - it'll make a BIG difference.
I am confident obambi will find a way to blame Bush and the eeevil republicans for the untimely demise of the tree.
The flattened loop on his right suggests a clip-on.
Obama’s no “bow-tying white boy”.
I truly believe that something is a miss in this event for us. Here is a tree that is supposed to grow naturally . It has the title Christmas tree for this permanent planted tree. Christ 's name is in the title of Christmas.His birthday anniversary.
It was planted in 1978 then is destroyed by winds in febuary of 2011. Which in the same year we have an earthquake that cracks the Washington monument . A symbol of the first president. Obama who is now in the line of this successer from the very beginning. Hmmmmm
Also I had a Christmas style tree on my front lawn from the 1960's. I was a kid. It got just too big we had to cut it down. Three times as big as house in a tight surban area. Healthiest tree ever. It went through Noreaster and hurricane but we had to cut it. I believe a blue spruce? Hmmmmmm
Shouldn’t have planted the poor tree so close to the hedge.
Obviously, it was the bushes’ fault.
It died from the humiliation of being used as a condom holder and Obama-honoring tree instead of its natural use. Poor tree. It is now out of its misery, and will not have to bear this humiliation again!
It’s Bush’s fault silly.
That fits too.
Our Muslim in Chief is very slow to get the message.
The rabidly anti-Christian commie doesn’t seem to understand that God blew down the long-standing Christmas tree before he would let Obama use it for his nefarious purposes. The Muslim tool then defied God and put in another, but God isn’t having any of it.
Sorry Obowma, but I wouldn’t bother planting another Christmas tree. Three strikes your out and all that jazz. Let the incoming Republican president do that in 2013 and you won’t have to suffer a 3rd failure.
