My weeping cherry tree doesn’t seem to be gaining heigth but limbs continue to grow.
Limbs are laying on ground and I have to trim them annually. This doesn't seem right. What can I do? Tree is 4 years old.

Weeping cherries are known to be short trees. Depending on the variety, they can be anywhere from 8 feet tall, to being able to top over 40 feet. And on the other end, there are dwarf varieties available now that are even smaller in stature.
What you describe is exactly what one would expect from the tree. You could even have to trim 3 or times per year when the conditions are right.
