Help! We have a tree here in NH we call choke cherry. It's the one the tent caterpillars love and the berries taste terrible. Research shows the a real Choke cherry is a shrub. These trees can grow to maybe 70 feet tall. The wood looks like cherry. So, what the heck is it? Is it Black Cherry? I can get it cut up for .23 cents a board foot. Is it worth it or is it a junk wood that looks like cherry?
