Black cherry is our native cherry. It grows large and can be used as a timber tree. It produces prolific small cherries which are great for wildlife. Their flavor varies from tree to tree— I find some enjoyable out of hand and others not so much. You can process the fruits into jams and other products as well. As an early succession tree, it grows fast and tall from seed and can begin fruiting in as little as 5 years. Black cherry is a great ally for restoration work and is a keystone species with an extensive native range.

These are first year seedlings in the range of 1' tall. 

It is preferable for the tree to be transplanted very small to promote root health. All seedlings are shipped dormant as bare roots.

Also available from seed
