In 1992, US President George Bush (senior) stood under a giant sequoia tree inside Giant Sequoia National Monument in eastern California, and made a Presidential Proclamation promising to protect, preserve and restore all of the sequoia groves on National Forest System lands throughout the Sierra Nevada. The tree under which George Bush stood and delivered and signed the proclamation was named the President George Bush Tree.

The stone plaque at the site reads:  “THIS GIANT SEQUOIA TREE IS DESIGNATED THE GEORGE BUSH TREE IN CELEBRATION OF THE PRESIDENT’S ACTION AT THIS SITE ON JULY 14, 1992 TO MANAGE GIANT SEQUOIA IN PERPETUITY AS UNIQUE OBJECTS OF BEAUTY AND ANTIQUITY FOR THE BENEFIT AND INSPIRATION OF ALL PEOPLE.”
