This was in the middle of a very overgrown field I’ve been getting mowed to clean up and put my RV. I could be totally wrong or I may be right on. Unfortunately I absolutely do not know. I’m really has a lot of characteristics of my cherry trees. So I put leaves close up from both. The left is from the unidentified tree the right is my hedenfiger cherry. Thanks
The leaves look like sour cherry leaves.
Dang. It’s rit where I’m parking my new RV. Would it hurt to transplant it? If so, if someone knows should you transplant dormant or with leaves?
It is always better to transplant trees when they are dormant. I am not exactly sure that it is sour cherry, maybe somebody else confirm.
Wild black cherry/chokecherry/prunus serotina is a strong possibility. I like the flavor, but the fruit is tiny, and they’re apparently no good as rootstock.
I can’t identify at that level of precision, but if I’m right there will be several others in the vicinity.
I checked. There are som other much smaller ones. Wonder if keeping them will help distract deer from the good crop…?
Kind of looks like Prunus serotina to me also. I’d cut it down.
Really? Are they problematic? That’s very interesting…
Fruit is edible but tiny. Also it’s a black knot magnet. Cut it down to a stump and it can send up multiple shoots 6 ft in a season. Not worth transplanting. I’d cut it down also but If transplanting is desired do small ones when dormant.
It’s right where I am going to make a pad so I’ll dig it out totally and put it in the burn pile. Thnx folks…
