Looks like they do have the cherry bark too but I didn't find it before.
I'll definately have to buy from them next time. Their prices look a lot better than starwest.

Some people say you can dig the root when the sap is down but I like it the best in the spring before the leaves come out.

Make sure that you don't get the bark above the root
Just as a note, make sure you avoid the ones near power lines! I had a stash near some and I went to check on them today to dig them up...the power company had taken RoundUp to them!!! Glad I didn't put that in my root beer. Looks like I will have to wait to find some more.

That is where I grow mine. I don't let the electric co. spray there. I use the area for my garden and fruit trees also. I keep most of it grubbed out and when a bigger tree limb gets to close to the line I call them to trim the tree.
