The white blossom of our native cherries has brightened Britain's hedgerows and woodlands for millennia.The blossom has an unforgettable display in spring.The flowers fragrance and sweet nectar attract insects to the tree to pollinate it. If the bark is damaged, it exudes gum which seals the wound to protect it from infection. The bark is shinning and peels horizontally. The toothed, hairy leaves are up to 5 cm long. The pure white flowers are 2.5cm across, produced in clusters, with five petals. The round, blackish red fruit are either sweet or bitter. Prunus Avium is a deciduous tree that can grow up to 12m high or more. It can take up to 50 years to reach it's full height. It's trunk can be over 75cm in diameter. PRUNING of established cherry trees should be done in mid summer. Any unsightly branches growing out at odd angles can be pruned out and lower branches taken off altogether to leave a good strong trunk
