Is cherry wood  the fruit tree cherry like George Washington chopped down or is it the hardwood cherry tree that's used to make furniture out of ?  I have some property with allot of large hardwood cherry trees on it.

I cannot tell a lie (not right now anyway) They are one and the same. It is the hardwood of the tree. Good for smoking and creates a dark color.

Black cherry is the cherry used for cabinets and furniture, it is a  wild growing tree native to North America. Sweet cherry and sour cherry are the fruit trees that are cultivated for fruit production and as ornamental trees and originally came from Asia. The good news is that they all are excellent smoking woods, I use black cherry a lot.

If you find yourself with so much cherry wood from your property that you don't know what to do with it, I will HAPPILY pay the shipping costs to take it off your hands biggrin.gif

Hey, I guess I have an answer for that see, as of my experience black cherry is used for cabinets and office furniture; Sweet cherry and sour cherry are the fruit trees that are cultivated for fruit production.
