PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Talk about moving up in the world, literally: a sapling, that was initially reported stolen from Mill Ends Park, has been returned and is now setting comfortably on the forested hillside of Mt. Tabor Park.

The formerly missing sapling's spot in Mill Ends Park is now occupied by a new sapling.

The two trees attracted national interest earlier this month after police say the tree was stolen.

Within a week, Portland Parks and Recreation replaced the tree, and just days later, the original sapling was found lying next to Mill Ends Park.

The healthy young tree can now be seen by all at its new home on Mt. Tabor as the new sapling sits proudly in the world's smallest park.
