Black Cherry
Prunus serotina

Black cherry is a medium to large sized tree that grows rapidly. Fruit of the tree is dark purple to black, small, and bitter-tasting. It is consumed by a number of wildlife species. Wild Cherry cough syrup is made from extracts of the inner bark. Because of its rich color and close-grained structure, the wood is valuable for furniture manufacturing.
