The cherry trees on the National Mall are a beloved cultural symbol in our nation’s capital. Damage from weather, flooding, and foot traffic pose an ongoing threat to the trees. Limited public funds are not enough to annually maintain the trees and surrounding grounds. Your support is vital.
The Trust for the National Mall and National Cherry Blossom Festival are working together to preserve and protect the iconic cherry trees. For each of the 3,800 cherry trees on the National Mall, we want to raise $1,000. Each donation goes into the official Cherry Tree Endowment, which will give the National Park Service additional resources to fund the care, maintenance, and possible replacement of the beloved cherry trees.
