Help Identifying Flowering Tree

Unread post by patriceinil »

I need some help to identify this tree that is growing between my back fences. At first I thought it was a peach by the shape of the leaf and the bark. But this year it flowered and it definitely is not a peach tree. I have no clue what it is but it is going to have to get cut out as it is directly under the electric power lines.

Can someone identify it for me before I start trying to cut it out of the fence?

A friend on another site thinks it is a black cherry tree.

Yup. That is a wild black cherry. We have one in the pasture. The cherries are small, but edible.

Black cherry has medicinal qualities too.

Thanks gals, I’m thinking I’ll leave it growing there since it has medicinal value. Thanks for the medicinal link FF
