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?
