Weeping Cherry Trees

Snow Fountain Weeping Cherry

Anonymous added on October 27, 2013 | Answered

I have had a weeping cherry for a few months now, and first I battled Japanese beetles. It doesn't seem to be taking root either. I tried a root starter product, then the leaves all turned brown and dried up. I keep it watered as per directions. Stray cats started scratching on the trunk, so I built a fence around it. The tree has no leaves and the branches seem to be dying. How do I save it?

Trees and shrubs can take up to 3 years to become truly "established" or rooted-in. Since you don't state your zone or location, I'll assume you are seeing normal dormancy "fall" leaf drop. You can experience twig die back on newly planted trees. Keep the plant watered through out the next 12 months.
