I'm not clear as to what your question is.

Why are their no cherry trees around KY

Sweet cherry trees do not survive very long in KY. Our weather and late frosts, freeze or damage the crop to the point that it is not economical to grow them in this region.
Most cherries come from the north east or western part of the US. Sour cherries do grow and produce in KY. But there is not the market for them so there are few growers.
