The Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival is coming up this spring and in celebration of the city’s 125th anniversary, they are encouraging residents to plant cherry tree. 3,000 Birthday Blossom trees are available for purchase before March 29, 2011 for $40. Proceeds will help support the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival, “a charitable non-profit society dedicated to the education, celebration and preservation of the 38,000 cherry trees that help make our city unique, attracting admirers from around the world.”

The goal is to have 40,000 cherry trees in Vancouver, brightening up private properties, school grounds, and company lawns. While they are currently sold out of Pendula, they still have supplies of Kanzan and Akebono trees. More information include payment details, pick-up locations, and planting tips can be found via the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival.

The photos in this post have all been contributed to the Miss604 Flickr Group.
