Prunus serotina / Wild Cherry Bark Cut
£32.00 – £120.00
Prunus serotina, commonly called black cherry, wild cherry, rum cherry, or mountain black cherry, is a deciduous woody plant species belonging to the genus Prunus.
Black cherry is a medium-sized, fast-growing forest tree growing to a height of 50-80 feet.
The species is widespread and common in North America and South America. Prunus serotina was widely introduced into Western and Central Europe as an ornamental tree in the mid 20th century, where it has become locally naturalized. It has acted as an invasive species there, negatively affecting forest community biodiversity and regeneration.
