A few weeks ago I asked the Captain his opinion. He gets a good look at the back of my property due to the lay of the land. We took a walk on my property. Told each other a few lies. Ate some apples. And picked out a couple of promising looking trees. The Captain strongly advised against using a wild black cherry. He has seen too many of them spit out fasteners and snap limbs.

|View to the northwest. Arrow points at a scrape. This will require a left hand shot 8-(. Pasture in background is mine.|
