Vandals Destroy 50-Year-Old Cherry Blossom Trees in SF Japantown

Two cherry blossom trees in front of the Japanese Cultural Community Center of Northern California were “completely vandalized” on Tuesday morning, leaving no hope for flowers this year.

The trees, which were destroyed down to the trunk, were the first to be planted in San Francisco’s Japantown in over 50 years, following the removal of all trees in the area by the city’s Redevelopment Agency in the 1960s and ’70s.
