Authentic Project Ideas – Trees as Gifts

Washington Monument

Why did the Japanese give Cherry Blossom trees to the city of Washington, D.C.?

What is the story behind the gift?  Do the trees represent something?  Are Cherry Blossom trees well suited for the D.C. climate, was that why they were chosen?

What tree would be a good gift from one country to another?  Have other countries received trees as gifts? What kind of tree would make a good gift for a special birthday?  Why is a tree a good gift?  How can you gift a tree to someone?

So many questions that might lead to an authentic project.  And if you end up the proud owner of a special tree in a big pot in your home, or in your yard, you can thank me later!
