So did George Washington really cut down the cherry tree? The cherry tree myth is the most well-known and longest enduring legend about George Washington. Ironically, this iconic story about the value of honesty was invented by one of Washington's first biographers, Parson Weems. Washington never chopped down a cherry tree, but he did cultivate many fruit trees for both food and ornamental beauty - including cherry trees!
