Q.Snails destroying weeping cherry tree

Zone 98272 | roxj added on May 8, 2018 | Answered

My precious weeping cherry tree has fallen victim to snails. The last few years I have battled them with everything out there. It seems they have won. The tree barely bloomed and now has hardly any leaves and most of the branches are bare and look dead. If I trim off all the dead branches will it grow back or do I have to cut it down?

Trimming might help quite a bit, but you should expect a long recovery time before it returns to its weeping stature. Try this: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/insects/organic-snail-control.htm
