Black Cherry

When I came upon this tree I noticed the black cherries. Yet many times these are not there. There also is other ID's of this tree that help you.

The wood of Black cherry is second only to Black walnut in value of furniture or paneling.  The problem of Black cherry as you can see by this tree there are not many large trees that have commercial value. Because of this it would be hard to sell these trees.

The bark I photographed here was not prevalent on the whole tree. I found this one spot that had the ID of horizontal lenticles that are characteristic of this species.
