Oddly enough I lost mine because the roots rotted out and I had hoped that I would find some suckers to replace it but no luck. It never suckered at all unlike the wild cherry and the cherry plum which send suckering roots out for miles across the garden. It was a beautiful specimen about 12ft high with a canopy about 18ft across. Bees love it too. It just fell over one sad day with very little root left.
When I cut it up I tried using a log splitter wedge to create firewood sized pieces and discovered that it had grown in a tight spiral making it impossible to split lengthways.
