Cherry Flooring

CHERRY (PRUNUS SEROTINA)

Pennsylvania’s Cherry Trees are known throughout the world for their quality and value. We are fortunate to have these trees growing in our own back yard.   The Cherry tree is a member of the Rose Family, which is fitting since they are both quite beautiful. Black Cherry, which is 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. Therefore, opening the canopy after a harvest is the only way for these young trees to survive. Colonists used cherry trees for their fruit, their medicinal properties, and for stunningly beautiful home furnishings.
