Weeping Cherry Trees

How Do I Know if Tree Is Dead


Anonymous added on May 30, 2016 | Answered

I bought a willow cherry tree in April. It's about 45" tall. Today, it lost all of its leaves, dried out even though I watered it. Ends are dry. I scratched the bottom trunk, and it is brown. How do you know if it's time to say it's dead?

Here is an article on how to identify a dying tree that may help you:

Given that this is a new planting and you had a scratch test that was 'brown' I would approach the nursery you bought this tree from and inquire about a replacement.
