Black cherry is a fast growing, large shade tree that is considered to be highly valuable to wildlife. Abundant, fragrant white flowers bloom in spring and provide nectar and pollen for native bees, bumblebees, honey bees and butterflies. In late summer the purple black fruits ripen and attract over 30 species of songbirds. Fruits could be used to make jams and jellies
