There’s an old cherry tree on the side yard; it was here when I bought the property. In recent years it has been getting less cherries on and last year just had a few little nubs. I have work done by a great tree service, Cumberland Valley Tree Service, http://www.cvtslandscape.com/ and I had the guy from there look at it last fall. I was afraid it had lived its life and might not live much longer.
The tree service guy said it is still a healthy tree, but had a disease that is very treatable. He needed to come and apply two sprayings to the tree this spring. He did that, and now the birds and I get to fight over a lot of cherries on the old tree. I picked this many without the ladder, and there was a crow at the top as I was coming in, saying: Hey, you missed the ones at the top, lol. It’s a huge tree, and they can have their share.
