Cherry Trees
Q.

I have a weeping cherry tree about 3 years old and the main stem seems to be bending over. Is this correct for it to do so?

It is excessively heavy on that side and you are right to be concerned, The shape is distorted and it could become prone to breakage.
Here are pruning instructions:
