Black Cherry

Prunus serotina, commonly known as black cherry, is a deciduous tree native to North America. It is highly valued for its hard, durable wood and edible fruit, which is used in jams and pies. Black cherry trees can grow up to 80 feet tall and have a narrow, pyramidal crown. Its leaves turn yellow or red in the fall. Black cherry bark is dark and scaly, with prominent lenticels. The tree produces small, white flowers in the spring, followed by clusters of dark purple berries in late summer. The bark, leaves, and seeds contain toxic compounds and should not be consumed.
