Someone tried to climb this cherry blossom tree and now it’s dead

With the importance of social distancing during the coronavirus outbreak, no one should be going to the Tidal Basin.

Park officials say they removed a broken cherry blossom tree from D.C.’s Tidal Basin after someone tried to climb it.



The warm weather this spring has led to an early peak bloom for D.C.’s cherry blossoms.

Despite warnings from public officials, people are still checking out the cherry blossoms in person.

As if the threat of the global pandemic was not enough, now plantlife might be endangered by big crowds on the National Mall.

On Saturday, the National Park Service tweeted that they would increase parking restrictions around the mall to deter excessively.
