I have two Juneberry/Serviceberry trees that I love. Beautiful to look at in the spring, fruit on them in June, which the birds, squirrels and I love to eat, and again the tree is a pretty sight in the fall.
My problem is that only one of trees is producing blossoms and fruit. The other one is a slacker and produces only one branch with blossoms. What do I have to do to get the non producing tree to produce more blossoms? Should I trim the branches? Any suggestions? Anyone?

Is your slacker tree more in the shade? If yes, then get it more sun.

The trees are about equal in the amount of sun they receive and are both located in a sunny area. The slacker tree might get the evening shade a few minutes sooner.

Where can I get Juneberry plants? Is it easy to transplant them? If I were to go where they grow wild and try to transplant them to my backyard, would it work? Thanks for any help you can give me.

Matt, there is a little due dilligence you'll need to do. No one can adress your questions in 500 words.

Start with a Google search about Amelancher--juneberry.

Theres are about a jillion vibernums, one of more will be 'just right' for you, depending on where you live.

Stuff you wanna find out by search might be:

What zone are you in?
How much yard--acerage do you wanna devote to your new plantation?
How're they gonna get watered?
What tools will I need?

Oh there are others. The easy part is the last three you can do by walking out of doors and looking around.

For a northern USAian grower I like St lawrence Nursery, and OIKOS Tree Crops. Both have web pages.

Juneberry trees are often called "serviceberry trees." Serviceberry is probably a more appropriate name because the berries won't mature until July. Maybe I'll return to this campsite for some serviceberry pancakes then!
