The Pittsburgh Sakura Project formally began in May, 2007, after a proposal by members of the Japan Association of Greater Pittsburgh and became an independent nonprofit organization in 2009. We have a dream that, in five to ten years time, those who love cherry blossoms will be able to enjoy fine, mature, beautiful cherry trees.

<Event Report>
4TH YEAR OF PLANTING: March 24 (Sat) Digging Holes for Trees
Report on Saturday: Taro Sekikawa, Hiro Kitahara, Alexandra, Rick and I spent a good morning at the park. Holes were dug (we were especially thankful for the young, strong men) and stakes were installed on some of the trees on the hill. As always, Alexandra arrived fully equipped and prepared for all the contingencies. Another of the trees appeared to have mower damage and though it was blooming nicely, was quite weak. We hope to install more stakes on Tuesday besides those for the new trees. We had a woman tell us she came to the park especially to see the cherry trees and today my neighbor said he took his mother to see them too.  - Kary
