Q.Any Hope To Save A Weeping Cherry

Zone 84117 | DesertLass added on October 4, 2023 | Answered

I gifted this weeping cherry to my mother about 15+years ago. Although sparse, it had been growing steadily and has always been healthy. About two weeks a large branch from the neighbors fence line broke off during a bad wind. This is the tree today. Any chance to save it by pruning with anticipation of new growth in spring? Please ignore that I haven’t cleaned up the broken branch as I’ve been lame and unable to do yard work. -Le B
