Distribution:

The main distribution for Cherry is eastern Canada and northeastern United States. It can be found a far south as eastern Florida and as far west as Minnesota. The color of the heartwood is effected by the geography in which the tree grows. Cherry grown in Pennsylvania, especially in the Alleghany National Forest, is often the "reddest" and most sought after. The tree prefers to grow in areas with deep moist soil.

General Description

The sapwood is a pale yellow, sometimes with a greenish tint, it is often very narrow. The heartwood can range from yellowish red to a pinkish brown to a dark reddish-brown depending on the region the tree grows in. It can often contain small narrow gum or resin pockets. The grain is fine and even, but main contain some waviness.
