Cherry Lidded Box
Prunus serotina is commonly called Black Cherry, Wild Black Cherry, Rum Cherry, or Mountain Black Cherry. The wood produced is hard, reddish-brown and is valued as a hardwood for wood turning, cabinetry, musical instruments and more. American Black Cherry wood is also used for smoking foods (particularly meats) in North America, as it lends a distinct and pleasant flavor to the product. Young trees have a straight trunk and symmetrical conical crown, becoming rounded to irregular on old trees. They grow to heights of 50-100 tall with diameters of 1-1/2 5 feet. The bark is smooth purplish-brown with prominent horizontal grey-brown lenticels on young trees, becoming thick dark blackish-brown and fissured on old trees. This is a striking batch of very colorful and highly figured American Black Cherry that has been kiln dried.
