One Side Of My Weeping Cherry Seems To Be Dying.
The leaves on one side of the tree have dropped, yet the other side is fine. It is in full sun and I have kept the water up to it during the hot summer. Any suggestions as to why this is happening, please? It is a bit hard to see in the photo.

It is very difficult to say, with such little growth.
Try pinching the tip of one of the branches. Break it, and if it is brittle then it is a dead branch. If there is some give to it, then is it likely alive.
Make sure to cut back any dead, brittle branches. Once it does leaf out, you can assess the damage. If you notice any spots or lesions then you may want to treat for fungal/bacterial infections.
