Recognizable by their beautiful and fragrant pink blossoms, cherry trees are not just a pretty addition to a yard.
The fruit of a cherry is both delectable in desserts, preserves and smoothies and are rich in antioxidants and vitamins. Whether you choose a sour or sweet variety, cherries look good and are good for you. Cherry trees are at risk of being attacked by pests like the Shothole Borer and aphids, both of which borrow into the tree’s wood and leaves. They can also be infected by Powdery Mildew which causes your plant to decrease its growth speed and, if the infection is severe enough, will reduce fruit yield and quality. Properly spraying and pruning will ensure that your cherry tree remains healthy and bears you fruit for years to come.
