Q.Is My Flowering Cherry Tree Dying?

Zone Gainesville, Georgia 30504 | Marty Siegel added on July 23, 2020 | Answered

The leaves on our young cherry tree have suddenly turned brown within three days! The tree is supposed to be a fruitless variety. It has been a relatively wet summer here in Gainesville, Georgia. The tree is in a well drained area near the top of a hilly yard. The trunk of the tree appears to be in good shape. I scraped a bit of the bark off and the trunk has a very green and healthy appearance. The main trunk of the tree is about 4″ in diameter and it is approximately 12 ft in height.
