Why Black Cherry?

Black Cherry is a large native tree found throughout the United States. The tree blooms showy white flowers in the early spring, which later turn into dark pea-sized fruits in the late summer, making it the ideal addition to your landscape.

The deciduous tree, Prunus serotina, grows on moist wooded slopes and upland woods and is confined to canyons, valleys, and rich bottomlands. It prefers full sun to partial shade and can withstand heavy pruning. If grown in the right conditions, the tree grows like a weed and overtakes the landscape with greenery. 

Black Cherry is one of the most valued furniture woods in North America. It is used for making toys, handles, interior trim, and medical instruments. The fruit is edible and can be eaten raw or used in wine and jelly to add flavor. 

Black Cherry trees are highly susceptible to fire and ice damage and thus suitable for drier lands, along fencerows, and the edges of wooded areas.

    I just got the two trees yesterday. They were alive and looked okay. They were planted this morning and I'm sure I won't know how they will do for about two weeks.

    Great Start!

    Bought three wild cherry trees. After soaking dry roots overnight as instructed and planting, they are ALL doing wonderfully. Very exciting to get this host tree for Yellow Swallow Tail butterfly growing at my home.
