Yard Plant Volunteer

Asked July 26, 2015, 4:57 PM EDT

Pictured is a plant that volunteered itself in my yard. I'm happy to keep it around if it's a native plant. No flowers that I can see. Any idea what it is?

This looks like a native black cherry tree. This is a wonderful plant for wildlife and will grow into a big shade tree.


How exciting! It's tucked in there pretty tightly next to a very large white pine. I'll definitely keep it and hope that it grows well.
