    Looks like a wild cherry. I think black cherry is the correct common name of the tree. It’s the favorite food of a fuzzy wuzzy caterpillar called eastern tent worm! Aren’t you lucky. http://www.ganondagan.org/hiking/trees.html#BCherry

    It looks like a wild black cherry. It is quite common in GA. It spreads like weed.

    Thanks for the help folks!!

    I would love to keep it but now that it has been identified and I’ve done a little research, I don’t think I’ll be able to

    Why not? It produces fruit that is great wildlife food and the tent caterpillars are also great wildlife food. My wild cherries haven’t gotten tent caterpillars in twenty years. I have three that are no problem.
