The wild cherry is a medium sized tree that can reach up to 20 metres tall with a large round crown spread of up to 12 metres wide when mature.

The bark is brown-red in colour. Foliage is deciduous, the leaves shoot bronze in colour then change to dark green. In the autumn they change colours from yellow to orange-red before they fall.

Flowering takes place in April and is spectacular, when masses of fragrant, brilliant white flower clusters cover the crown of the tree.

Flowering is followed by the fruiting of edible, delicious, round, dark-red cherries.

We provide full planting services for Wild Cherry Trees which includes supply, delivery and installation. Contact us today for a quotation.
