Prunus pensylvanica Pin cherry

Pin Cherry
Prunus pennsylvanica
Family: ROSACEAE

The pin cherry is native to the northern U.S. and Canada where it forms pure stands that provide shade for slower growing species. It may also be called fire cherry because of its use as a reforesting agent after forest fires. Another common name is bird cherry, due to its extensive foraging use by birds.
