The sapling carries special meaning: it came from an oak tree that grew on a World War I battle site. About 2,000 American soldiers died in the June 1918 Battle of Belleau Wood, fighting a German offensive.

Last Monday, Members of the media took videos and photos as the two leaders planted the sapling.

By the end of last week, though, the tree was nowhere to be found. People questioned why Trump or White House officials would have dug up the tree.

After a weekend of wondering, people got their answer Monday. The missing tree was put in quarantine, like other plants or animals brought into U.S. territory.

Quarantine is a period in which something that has arrived from another country or place is kept away from others to prevent a possible spread of disease.
