Which President banned Christmas trees in the White House?

Answer:

THEODHORE ROOSEVELT

President Theodore Roosevelt, an avid outdoorsman and environmentalist, banned Christmas trees from the White House during his presidency. The president feared that real Christmas trees would lead to deforestation. Roosevelt refused to display a Christmas tree in the White House, fearing that to do so would be sending the wrong message to the public. Roosevelt's action was intended to inspire Americans to just say no to Christmas trees. But Roosevelt’s son, Archie, didn’t share his ecological principles. He dragged in a small tree and hid it, fully decorated, in a closet.
