How do you like your cherry trees? Fluffy and full? Tall and colorful? White and wonderful?

The Arbor Day Foundation and the National Cherry Blossom Festival are letting you click your pick for the top tree variety on the Arbor Day Web site. Starting today, guests can choose among the Autumn Flowering, Kwanzan and Yoshino cherry trees.

If you have a green (or pink) thumb, you can also buy a cherry tree for your garden, with part of the proceeds being given to the National Cherry Blossom Festival, which runs from March 20 to April 27 this year. Voting ends April 27 — Arbor Day — when the winner will be named.
