U.S. Marine Corps Sgt. Maj. Michael Castillo (left), sergeant major for the Battalion Landing Team (BLT) 1/6, and Lt Col. Scott Helminski, commanding officer of the BLT, Battalion Landing Team 1/6, 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit, pose with a plaque to commemorate the Belleau Wood Tree Dedication Ceremony on Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, Feb. 16, 2023. The tree was planted as part of a project dedicated to establishing groves of Belleau Wood “descendant trees” throughout the United States. The acorns were acquired from France and planted, protected, and nurtured until grown to a size where the saplings could be transported safely, subsequently planted at significant locations around the country.
