$20 Bill Tree Down

Tree Down At White House Changes $20 Bill?

POSTED: 4:08 pm EDT June 26, 2006
UPDATED: 5:11 pm EDT June 26, 2006

Heavy storms that created flooding through the Mid-Atlantic States also impacted the White House.

A tree that has stood in front of the White House came down during heavy storms last night. The large American Elm was not planted by a president or first lady but it shares a piece of history in any case.

The NBC White House Bureau reports that the tree is featured prominently on back of the $20 bill. It can be found in the far right corner of the image on the back of a $20 bill. The tree is believed to date back 140 years to the Andrew Johnson White House.

No one was injured when the tree limbs fell.

There is no word as to whether the image on the back of the $20 bill will be changed.


This was the best story I could find. If you find better, please post it.

I'm not sad about the tree, as a tree, I'm intrigued by the historical significance of it, as it's on our $20 bill.

You have this thing for me?

I'm not available man. This tree doesn't swing that way. I'm married to another, very hot looking, tree. Big leaves, if you know what I mean. Nice trunk too. :-b B-)

Hammy doesn't eat trees. Or currency. Does he?
