The Trust for the National Mall is teaming up with the National Trust for Historic Preservation to help save the Tidal Basin.

The first phase of this three-year campaign is to design, host, and share results from an Ideas Lab presented by American Express, which will invite five world-class architecture and landscape design firms to re-imagine the future of the Tidal Basin with innovative and forward-thinking historic preservation solutions. Together, we will overcome the complex preservation issues affecting the Tidal Basin.

Damage from weather, flooding and foot traffic pose an enduring threat to the beloved cherry trees on the National Mall. The Trust for the National Mall and National Cherry Blossom Festival are working together to preserve and protect the trees.

Whether you choose to start a team, or dedicate a tree to your family and loved ones, we invite you to join us in this powerful campaign to fund the care, maintenance and replacement of the iconic cherry trees on the National Mall.
