Everyone wanted a Moon tree. In 1975 and '76, trees were sent to the White House, to Independence Square in Philadelphia, to Valley Forge. "One tree went to the Emperor of Japan. Senators wanted trees to dedicate buildings. We even did some plantings in New Orleans because the mayor there, Mayor Moon, wanted some," says Krugman. There were so many requests that "we had to produce additional seedlings from rooted cuttings of the original trees."
No one kept systematic records, notes Dave Williams. That's why the whereabouts of the trees today are mostly unknown.
