with the City of Sacramento and Sacramento’s Japanese sister city,
Matsuyama, the Sacramento Tree
Foundation is challenging our community to create a unique linear park where
Sacramentans will come to experience hanami
The Sacramento Tree Foundation will take the lead role, with engaged
civic and business partners, to plan, design, plant and steward the
trees along The Hanami Line. As many as 200 specially-grown cherry trees
be selected for adaptability to our climate and soils. The Hanami Line
will be the heart of the annual cherry blossom
In the winter of 2013, we asked community members to submit their ideas about where the Hanami Line might be located. The winning proposal was chosen based on available and
appropriate planting space, partner commitment, level of community and business
support, and city approval.
Implementation of the chosen concept is reliant
upon funding. It is intended that the funds to implement this project will be
raised through private and in-kind donations. No public monies will be used.
