In fact, the beautiful Cherry Orchard represents different meanings to different people. Generally, it symbolizes Lubove’s youth and heritage. For Gaev, it represents status. For Lopakhin, it is symbolic of financial opportunity and for Trofimov, the orchard represents injustice due to aristocrat mistreatment with peasants serfs’ emancipation and Anya does not hold on to her sentimental attachment with orchard for the sake of new life.
