Pin Cherry grows quickly and will produce a lot of fruit once mature, which many animals rely on in late summer. Pin Cherry fruit is a favorite with songbirds – it is commonly known as Bird Cherry! Recent interest in commercial production has been on the rise. The fruit is edible and is used in jams, jellies, preserves and wine.
This amazing pollinator is widespread across much of Canada, usually found in open woodlands. It is useful for erosion stabilization in areas such as riverbanks and recently disturbed stands. Incredible fall color!
Not as susceptible to black knot as it’s close counterpart, Western chokecherry. Will not tolerate standing water.
