Q.Pruning a weeping cherry tree

Anonymous added on November 14, 2014 | Answered

My husband and brother-in-law decided to trim my beautiful weeping cherry tree that was planted on my property BEFORE I moved in. What they left was the trunk and several branches that were cut off to one foot long. I am devastated! The tree looks barren. . . and I mean all the weeping branches were cut off! Will it grow back? If so, how many years will it take?

It is hard to say how long the branches will take to grow back, but eventually they will. For future reference, this article will help with pruning: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/weeping-cherry/pruning-weeping-cherry.htm
