Speaks for itself really, our native wild cherry is very attractive, still commonly seen in woods and hedgerows and a must for any sizable wildlife garden.  

A tree much used by our ancestors, it is still sometimes known as 'mazzard' or 'gean', large, it can get to 20 m quite easily and is one of the ancestors of most of our culinary cherry trees so the quality of the fruit is therefore rather variable, it can be either sweet or sour. 

The birds will not mind either way, and the spring blossom, autumn colour and grey pealing bark more than compensate.
