Weeping Cherry Trees
Q.

How Do I Get My Tree to Look Like a Weeping One

Anonymous added on May 27, 2014 | Answered

I bought a weeping cherry tree last summer. I see that my neighbors have weights on their limbs. My tree is growing straight up. Do I need to put weights on the limbs to make them grow down? If not, what do I need to do?

You shouldn't need to, as this is the normal growth habit of the tree. It could be that your tree is grafted and may be in need of pruning to get it to start 'weeping' downward. This article should help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/weeping-cherry/pruning-weeping-cherry.htm
