This Black Cherry was one we got free from the Conservation Service and Indiana DNR. The first picture was taken on June 20, 2020 shortly after being planted. The sapling was then in a cage for protection, and the top visible rung on the cage is less than 2 feet high.  The second picture was taken on June 25, 2021. The tree is now a little over 6 feet tall. Black Cherry trees normally take 8 to 10 years of growth before they produce cherries. We’ll report back in June, 2030.

  1. It’s growing like a weed. We were at a friends house recently and she had a bumper crop of black cherries. I got two big bags of cherries off her trees.

  2. Your cherry tree is thriving! I love to see how much our plants have grown in a year. We have a current bush that is going great guns. We also have a weeping willow tree (Tree of Enchantment) that I bought for my husband. It gets thicker and thicker but I swear the silly thing is shrinking height-wise.
