The US and French presidents ceremoniously planted the European Sessile Oak on
the South Lawn of the White House on Monday during Mr Macron's state visit.
The pair threw dirt onto the newly installed tree, which was brought to the US from Belleau Woods, where thousands of US Marines died during the First World War.
Their wives, Melania Trump and Brigitte Macron, watched on. Speaking to reporters afterwards, Mr Trump said France was "a very special country", adding: "I love the tree." Mr Macron said the gift would be a reminder of the "ties that bind us".
