Weeping Cherry Trees
Q.

Help – I sprayed my weeping cherry tree with cutter backwoods – is it a lost cause?

I picked up the wrong can, and sprayed the young tree’s branches with Cutter Backwoods. In the morning, I did douse the tree with water (less than 12 hours later), but all of the leaves are brown and wilted. Ugh! Help!

You will have to treat this as if it were sprayed with a pesticide. This article will help you begin to correct the problem, although it is common for a tree to die when this happens: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/environmental/herbicide-plant-damage.htm
