Prior to crossing the Atlantic, it also crossed the heart of Europe starting out in Asia Minor. It is believed to have originated in this region and was brought back to Rome, but the mighty legions. In fact, as the Roman network of roads expanded throughout the ancient world, cherry trees were planted along this every expanding network. The wood was used to building wagons and weapons.
