A typical Portland Cherry, Prunus serrulata. There are thousands of these in Portland including the many Kwanzan, Akebono and Fuji Cherries. Other Cherries, like the Yoshino, planted in north Waterfront Park have a similar broad ‘vee’ structure Every branch here has been stubbed off…twice. You can see where each cut has been made with its resultant sprouts, giving it a ‘brush’ appearance. These trees are typically grafted at 4 or more feet above ground. The graft union is prominent at the top of the trunk.
