Some cherries need another tree for cross pollination. You might want to check if this is one. (05/09/2009)

Growing a Rainier Cherry Tree

We have a Rainier cherry tree in the back yard and we have seen bumper crops the past couple of years. What's the difference you ask from past years? My wife has planted a bunch of lavender plants in the back yard. The bees love the lavender bushes are are pollinating the fruit trees at the same time.

Also, I read in a post below about an ant issue. We have the same issue. Our problem is the birds eat the cherries, but leave 1/2 eaten cherries still in the tree. The ants love these broken into cherries and are after the sweets. I have found dish soap and water mixture will kill the ants and not harm the tree at all. Works great with grape vines too. Give it a try.
