Cherry trees were planted this weekend near a museum along the Grand River as part of a beautification initiative.

The Kent Garden Club was involved in Saturday's planting effort by the Grand Rapids Public Museum in Grand Rapids, and volunteers were on hand to beautify the museum's grounds.

The project added nine cherry trees to the riverfront near the museum.

Each tree will initially be 6 to 8 feet in height, growing to 30 to 40 feet when they reach maturity.

The trees will blossom in full about a year after being planted, but some blossoming may happen this year.
