Fruits provide a blue dye and a fibre can be obtained from the stems to make string. However, it is still a widely grown commercial fruit species and as such, further imports of plant material are likely. Daten und Informationen zu Wildpflanzen und zur Vegetation Deutschlands. Huxley AJ, Griffiths M, Levy M, 1992. The genus Rubus is distributed in all continents except in Antarctica, with a northern limit of 65-75°N (approximating to the Arctic Circle) including areas with extreme aridity (Weber, 1995).

In combination with the ability of Rubus to spread vegetatively over large areas, this has the consequence that the slightest variation tends to persist and to become recognised as a species, complicating the taxonomy. Dead, dry canes are also undesirable from an aesthetic point of view as well as the nuisance value of the thorny stems. Edees, E.S., Newton, A., 1988. Trees and Shrubs: Hardy in Great Britain.

However, dense blackberry thickets can provide nesting and sheltering sites for birds and mammals. Bruzzese (1980) states that though more than 40 phytophagous species occur on R. fruticosus, it appears that they have only little effect in suppressing populations of this species. Amor RL, 1974.
