Pruning Weeping Cherry Tree
We have a weeping cherry tree recently planted and now starting to produce leaves and blossoms; however, there are also some growths taking place on the trunk. Can you please advise if these should be removed and, if so, when and what is the best method of removal so as not to hurt the tree?

Yes, prune away the suckers as soon as they appear. They are growing from the root stock and will take energy away from the tree.
