Black Cherry Tree


The Black Cherry Tree (Prunus serotina), originating from eastern North America, earns recognition for its vibrant autumn leaves, dark, flaky bark, and the fine grain of its wood, while also playing a crucial ecological role by supporting wildlife and requiring active management to control its invasive spread. Its adaptability to diverse habitats, contributions to culinary and medicinal practices, and enhancement of biodiversity underscore the importance of active stewardship to maintain its balance of utility and ecological significance.
