Weeping Cherry

Zone 10954 | Maria Grace Monteleone added on June 14, 2017 | Answered

Hello! So I planted it about 3 weeks ago, and the leaves have all gotten brown and dried up. Do I remove them? Do I trim the branches as well? Is it salvageable? Thank you for your assistance!

Watering a newly planted tree is very important.

Make sure the soil and planting area is well draining.
Daily water for 2 weeks, then a bit less; but regular irrigation throughout the growing season.
3 to 4 inches of hardwood mulch will help with moisture control.

If the branches snap and break off, they have died.

Most reputable garden centers will guarantee a new tree for 1 year, so if it does not come back next year, you may be able to have it replaced.
