Q.Japanese Beetles And My Cherry Tree

Zone 46140 | Anonymous added on May 9, 2021 | Answered

Last year my cherry tree was overcome by Japanese beetles. This year although the tree looks alive it didn’t blossom. It doesn’t appear dead as the bark still looks like its living with its smooth and shiny texture. Two summers ago I removed multiple trees leaving just a peach tree and my cherry tree. Will my cherry tree produce fruit again? Is it from the beetles? Do I need more trees? How do I remedy this situation and have my cherry tree produce fruit? Right now it is an eye sore with no leaves or anything. Thank you for your time with this matter

Did you give it the scratch test to see if there is green underneath? That will let you know if the tree is alive or not. If it is, then you must figure out why it has not leafed out. I suggest contacting your local extension service for input.
