To help pollinate another cherry tree stella
Edward L on May 2, 2016
When my parents moved into our house, there were 2 cherry trees in the back yard. My granddad, who comes from a long line of farmers, identified them as black tartarians. They produced the most amazing cherries for all the years my parents lived here and made the best jam ever! Now that I've moved into the house and the trees are dying back (they are probably over 30 years old) I have got to replace them. It wouldn't be the same around here without them.

Can you keep black tartarians to a lower height by trimming them? What if you only have room for one tree?

BEST ANSWER: Its to soon to tell. The bear+ deer got in the orchard last winter after I left to work out of town.. My apples 15 years + old I do prune wide at the bottom and very low limbs, not like commercial orchards, but for easier harvesting, + if bears tear the fence down they won,t be so inclined to tear the tops out of the trees to see whats there. It is hard to mow like that. In 10-15 years I might be able to answer your question about cherry trees.
