My weeping cherry tree is thin in branches, can it be thickened? I planted it last May. Is there a way to prune to help growth of branches to thicken the appearance? It is very thin and the branches are not growing long at all.

I would give it a few years to settle in. The first year or so after a tree is planted, it is establishing itself into its new home. It will focus mostly on growing roots. After this, it will resume normal growth. Give it another year before worrying about the branches. They will likely improve on their own in the next year.
