Default Thoughts on Wild Cherry Wood?

Friend of mine offered up some seasoned wild cherry wood. Anyone ever used this type of wood on their stick burner? Is it any good?

I've had good luck with it but as a flavoring wood in chunks for chicken on a kettle. Also helped with color.

Sounds like a winning proposition, cherry wood is great for smoking.

All wood is good for smoking as long as it is cherry!

Wild Cherry is better then the fruit tree type you get from the orchards, fruit tree cherry is VERY dense and hard to split because of all the knots(caused by pruning). Wild cherry normally grows like a toothpick(straight up). Both taste the same, but I prefer wild hands down!!
