Kousa Dogwood “cornus kousa”
I was reading a post in NAFEX
Some of our ambrosia beetles might kill it.

As a member of the cornus, or dogwood, genus, the medium-size tree is related to common flowering dogwood (Cornus florida), hardy in USDA zones 5 through 9, and other ornamental dogwoods, including cornelian cherry (Cornus mas), hardy in USDA zones 4 through 8.

I planted a tree that I got from Raintree at my old place in NC. The fruit was definitely underwhelming in it's flavor and texture. I'd put it in the famine food category

But perfect for wildlife.

BTW in many European countries cornelian cherries are made into a sweet jam. Not really cherry flavoured but still good in its own right.

We saw this at Powell botanical gardens a couple weeks ago: Though it would be a nice fit to put on the house side of the chicken yard - wife likes dogwood flowers, fruit for the chickens to eat. Most of the fruit we saw was nickle size, and yes I tasted, it was kinda bland but a landscape tree to feed chickens now, us if ever needed.
