The Moon Tree was grown from seeds that journeyed to the moon and back aboard Apollo 14 during the period of January 31-February 9, 1971.
The seed was germinated by the U.S. Forest Service in Gulfport, Mississippi, and the seedling was presented to "The Clearing" at Ivy Green by Alabama Forestry Commission.
The Moon Tree seedling, a loblolly pine, was planted in "The Clearing" in October, 1976.
