    dude, if noone can help you figure it out, take those pics and some samples of leaves to your local nursery or county extension agent, they ought to be able to help you. I dont think its birch or cherry btw

    if you go to earl may, make sure you get a manager... most them kids dont know $h*t... I used to be a nurserymen/landscaper... but with limited evidence and years of being out of the biz... not to mention all those killed brain cells... im worthless

    Since they are just limbs , you can wait while they are seasoning till the leaves mature on the tree to find out exactly what they are.

    Not birch, too straight for hickory. I believe it is cherry also. Looks alot like the cherry I spent my weekend cutting last week.
    Very nice find for sure! It will be great next spring!

    Dude, based on the flowers, I'm about 99% sure those are flowering cherries. Probably japanese.

    EDIT: Just saw you said it doesn't ever produce. Ornamental cherry fruit is not very noticible sometimes. Do you ever notice small cherry shaped "things" under it?

    Does it typically get covered in blooms?
     
  19. walking dude

    walking dude Smoking Guru SMF Premier Member

    no blooms.........the one set of leaves has the seed pods.....the flat type that get brown........with the seed in the middle......but NO flowers

    Yes there is such a thing. Most of the cherry wood that is produced in the USA is non fruit producing. Cherry furniture,vaneers, and all cherry plywood comes from huge cherry trees. The ones we chopped up last week were well over 75 feet tall!
