Cherry Trees

Thanks to the generous support of our corporate and individual sponsors, 800 cherry blossom trees have been planted throughout Nashville. We are getting closer to our decade-long quest to plant 1,000 Japanese cherry trees. We can already imagine the 800 cherry trees planted in the last eight years full of beautiful, pink blossoms this spring, and we hope you will join us as we watch both the trees and the festival flourish in the years to come!
