Snow-covered apple tree located in the park between International Drive and International Place, NW, Washington, DC, 4 March 2016. According to the plaque beside it:
"THE NEWTON APPLE TREE
"A descendant of the original tree whose fruit gave inspirational impetus to Isaac Newton's theory of gravitational forces was nurtured by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and transplanted here on the grounds of the National Bureau of Standards on March 15, 1957.
"This tree, propagated from that descendant, was planted in April 2000 by the National Institute of Standards and Technology--formerly the National Bureau of Standards--to perpetuate the tradition.
"The National Bureau of Standards, founded March 3, 1901, occupied this site from 1903 to 1968."
