Black Cherry tree is a stunning deciduous tree that can grow up to 30 meters tall with a trunk diameter of up to 120 cm. Its striking white flowers blossom in spring, followed by the drooping clusters of delicious cherries in the summer. The valuable, strong, and lightweight wood of P. serotina is the best for producing furniture, paneling, professional and scientific instruments, and toys. Native Americans used the inner bark to make cough medicines and tea-like cold remedies. The fruit is perfect for making jam and cherry pies and flavoring liqueurs. Be cautious as the rest of the plant contains amygdalin and can be toxic if consumed. Trust our Pennsylvania source, which is well-known for producing the finest timber for furniture production. Order a Black Cherry tree and bring beauty and utility to your garden.
