March 23 - Pin Cherry - Prunus pensylvanica

The Pin Cherry tree on the Blue Ridge Parkway

The Pin Cherry tree lives up high at over 5,000 feet in elevation.  I drive up the Blue Ridge Parkway to what I call the top of the world to find this tree.  This Pin Cherry lives near Richland Balsam overlook on the Blue Ridge Parkway at over 6,000 feet above sea level.  This tree has not starting budding yet.  It is still winter like there.
