Weeping Cherry Tree Park Landscape
A beautiful Spring blossom landscape view of a weeping cherry tree and Yoshino cherry trees in peak bloom at Branch Brook Park in Essex County N.J. The famous cherry trees display began with a 1927 gift from Caroline Bamberger Fuld, sister of department store magnate Louis Bamberger and widow of the store's vice president. Today, the display has grown,through careful management and new plantings, to more than 5,000 trees of about 18 varieties of the ornamental tees,the largest collection in the U.S. The park's annual Cherry Blossom Festival attracts approximately 10,000 visitors to view the blossoms and participate in events and activites.
