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


Google
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.

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.
