Allegheny Serviceberry, Amelanchier laevis is a 15-25’ tree or shrub that has dense, fine-textured branches that produce beautiful clusters of white flowers. The edible berries come on in the summer, starting out as red, and turning to a deep purple, almost appearing black. Serviceberry trees grow well in moist to slightly dry soil (although, they are sensitive to drought), and they do well in sun, partial shade or well shaded areas. The tree provides food for birds and small mammals. Native Americans used the berries as a light, energy-filled food to survive long winter travels
