SW Georgia tree
« on: July 24, 2007, 09:49:37 AM »
I haven't seen many like this one on our place. It's in or near the pond site and other nearby trees include Sweetgums, Tulip Poplar, Water Oak, Magnolia Grandiflora, Wild Azalea, and some Loblolly.

If I remember correctly it's about 10 inches dbh.





Thanks.

That would be a black cherry (Prunus serotina).  I'd keep that baby around if I were you, it looks like a fairly straight specimen, (despite the limited vantage point) and it might make a nice timber tree in 10 or 20 years.

Thanks DL, this tree looks very similar to one that DanG called a cherry.

Is that not one of those we saw, GW?  The two right by the road were the only cherry trees I saw on the place.  I'm sure there are others, but I noticed that they were scarce on that property. ???  I'd definitely leave some for seed, if for no other reason.

No DanG it, this one is near the road by where the drain feeds the pond site. It actually may be in the pond site. :-\

You got that right. I have tons of seedlings around the back yard. It's funny to, I'm on the edge of the northern limit of it's range.
Move'n on.

Cherry is very shade intolerant.  It likes full sun to grow in.  If it is in full sun, it will grow straight.  If it is under a canopy of other trees, it will grow to the light.  If the light is not directly overhead, the tree will twist to find the light, resulting in sweepy and twisted trees.  Sadly, most of the ones around here are not gun-barrel straight (I still saw them anyway ::)).
