OTHER: The Black Cherry Tree is a North American native with delicious edible fruit. The leaves are long, glossy, & smell like black cherry when crushed. In fall, they turn lovely shades of yellow, rose, & orange. These trees are fast growing, long lived, & very ornamental.
In spring, tons of fragrant flowers cover the tree in drooping clusters that measure 4 - 6" long. The flowers are replaced by fruit that starts out red & darkens as it matures, ending up a very dark reddish-purple that is almost black. These edible black cherries are often made into jams & pies, wines, & a flavoring for brandy, whiskey, rum, soda, & ice cream.
Birds & other small critters love to eat the fruit of the Black Cherry Tree, the flowers are visited by bees & butterflies, & it provides wonderful living habitat for them.
The wood of this cherry tree is used for smoking & grilling foods because of the wonderful flavor it imparts. It is also “the” expensive red timber used for "cherry" wood furniture.
