Black Cherry is the monster forestry tree cousin of the orchard cherries you are used to seeing. Growing up to 60 feet tall this beautifully barked tree is a wildlife food staple and is being used experimentally out of its native region as a forestry crop in places like Idaho for its prized timber. It produces a prodigious amount of blossoms in the spring that are great for supporting pollinators too. It is a key player in its native habitat and can be integrated into cultivated plantings to provide yields of small fruits, timber and aesthetics.
