The average tree is reported to be about 80 feet (24 m) in height, and produces a tall trunk which is about 24 inches (60 cm) in diameter. Cherry trees are reported to be large enough to harvest after 35 to 40 years, with larger trees growing to full heights in about 100 years.

REGION: North America.

COUNTRY: Canada, United States.

SAPWOOD COLOUR: The narrow sapwood is whitish to reddish brown in colour. The wood has also been described as creamy pink.

HEARTWOOD COLOUR: The heartwood varies in colour from reddish brown to deep red, or light reddish brown, usually with brown flecks and some gum pockets. Some flooring manufacturers are reported to steam Black cherry lumber to bleed the darker heartwood into the sapwood for a more uniform colour. Colour variations between boards are reported to be rather significant.
