Cherry (Prunus Serotina)
Pennsylvania’s Cherry is known throughout the world for its quality and value. We are fortunate to have these trees growing in our back yard. Cherry Trees are members of the Rose family which is fitting as they are both beautiful. The Black Cherry used for flooring is one of the largest cherry trees and is easily identifiable by its thick, rough, dark outer bark. Cherry saplings can only survive for 3 to 5 years under a dense canopy covering, opening the canopy after a harvest is the only way for these young trees to survive. Colonists used cherry trees for their fruit, its medicinal properties, and stunningly beautiful home furnishings.
