Since 2002, the National Cherry Blossom Festival has been committed to further enhancing the natural beauty of Washington, DC by planting new cherry trees in neighborhoods across the city. Annually, the Neighborhood Tree Planting Program collaborates with schools, civic groups, and community groups throughout DC’s eight wards in partnership with Casey Trees to plant new trees and educate groups about tree care and maintenance. The Festival has successfully planted hundreds of trees in the District. Interested in learning more about the Neighborhood Tree Planting Program? Please contact Carol Herwig.
