We have a Rainier cherry tree, and we would like to get fruit, what steps must we take?

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