As our 44th president, Barack Obama, delivered his inaugural address, he gazed from the steps of the Capitol toward the Washington Memorial and beyond. His view of the crowd below him was framed by three impossibly large trees — a gingko, Caucasian elm and a bur oak. Past the Reflecting Pool, the naked branches of magnificent American elms framed the Mall symmetrically. The landscape of trees, architecture, water and humanity were not designed by accident. Although it is true that Washington D.C. celebrates our legacy and is devoted to monuments and museums, these symbols are only a part of our American story.
