Commonly used by our forefathers as a flavoring in rum concoctions as well as in cough syrup and jellies, the black cherry tree is a favorite to both man and game. After the attractive cluster of small white flowers bloom in the spring, this tree wastes no time bearing fruit. Having clusters of cherries in early summer, it is one of the earliest producers in the wild.

Almost all birds and most mammals, especially black bear, fox and squirrels can be found near this tree consuming the small, tasty cherries. The black cherry tree has a rapid growth rate and produces fruit at a young age. Another advantage is the high germination rate. The seed that will be spread around by the birds and other critters will quickly grow into many young scrumptious seedlings that deer will be more than happy to browse down for you.

If you are looking for something to quickly attract all forms of wildlife to areas of your property, add a couple of these to your list. Just be careful if you plant close to your camp, with all those cherries lying on the ground you may wind up with cherry colored footprints all over your porch.
