Q.Dwarf Cherry Trees Seem To Be Weak With Branches Weeping. Is This Due To Fruit Production?

Zone Zone 4a | Anonymous added on June 17, 2021 | Answered

I have two dwarf Cupid Cherry trees from the Romance Series. This is the third year I’ve had these trees. Last year they had a serious infestation of leaf rollers while I was away. I cleaned them up as soon as I returned but they were pretty damaged. I still got fruit but not a heavy yield. This year the yield seems at the high end but the branches seem weak and are drooping. I don’t remember seeing them like this before. Also the leaves seem to be a bit sparce, more so on one of them. Is this an indication of a health problem or is it simple because of the weight of the cherries forming? If it’s a health issue, what can I do? (Sorry, I can’t send a photo at this time).

Unfortunately, without a photo it is hard to say. If you do not notice any spotting, or other signs of infection, then I would chalk it up to the weight of the fruit.
