Flowering Cherry Tree

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I'm getting ready to remove a old flowering cherry tree from my parents yard. Can someone tell me if flowering cherry wood is good for smoking? If so does it taste the same as wood from a fruiting cherry tree?

According to the sticky found here: flowering cherry wood is fine to use for smoking.

I would say yes because don't all cherry trees flower and I personally use cherry alot if I cann't get apple.

I think a cherry is a cherry, they all come from the same family just different fruit. Best way to find out is dry some out and give it a try. And let us know what ya think.

Many flowering or weeping cherry trees are grafted. If you are talking the ornamental trees I would be careful with the trunk.

I believe we were told it was grafted. The trunk is only about 4 feet tall but probably 18-20" round. The branches shooting off of that are 6-10" round and about 10' long and this is what I want to use. Funny thing, they have had the tree for 20+ years and this year one of the branches produced lots of little cherries.
Thanks for the input everyone!!

Even if it 's grafted, it is grafted to cherry root stock. Use it all, it's all cherry.
