The Common Chokecherry is a small tree, sometimes a shrub, and often forms dense thickets of woody growth. It has small white flowers that grow in elongated, drooping clusters and produce dark red cherries. The bark of the tree is brown or gray, sometimes smooth, sometimes scaly. Many kinds of wildlife eat its small, reddish fruits. People also occasionally plant the Common Chokecherry tree as an ornamental, or to provide food for birds.
