NEIGHBORHOOD TREE PLANTING PROGRAM

Since 2002, the National Cherry Blossom Festival has been committed to further enhancing the natural beauty of Washington, DC and the surrounding Tidal Basin region by planting hundreds of new cherry trees in neighborhoods across the region.

Annually, the Neighborhood Tree Planting Program collaborates with schools, civic groups, and community associations in partnership with Casey Trees to plant new trees and educate groups about tree care and maintenance. Contact Carol Herwig to learn more about this program.

ENDOW A CHERRY TREE CAMPAIGN

You can help keep the beloved cherry trees blooming each year!

The Trust for the National Mall and the National Cherry Blossom Festival are working together to raise funds to care and maintain the iconic cherry trees. Join this one-time opportunity to endow all 3,800 trees on the National Mall by making a pledge to give, or raise, $1,000 per tree to grow the Cherry Tree Endowment. You can make an individual gift, start or join a crowd-funding team and receive recognition for your support.  For more information, please visit www.nationalmall.org/cherrytrees.

Your support is vital to protecting the cherished cultural symbol on the National Mall.  Join the campaign today!
