pin cherry or wild black cherry
It's time for DNR conservation tree plantings in my area again! This year I would like to try some native cherry trees-- pin cherry (prunus pennsylvanica) or wild black cherry (prunus serotina). The goal is to try to have a set of trees which will attract birds and give me quality edible cherries to jam and jelly. I already have common chokecherries (prunus virginiana), so this time I'd like to order something different. Please comment on your experiences with black cherry and pin cherry.
Thank you for your help,
