I need some more information. Is this tree in a full shade location? Weeping cherries grow and bloom best in full sun, but they tolerate light shade.

When you say ‘it’s dying a little at a time each year’, does the ‘dying’ happen after every winter?

Hi Shelly,
Thanks for your response.
It is in partial shade. The number of dead limbs seems to increase each year. We haven’t tried any type of fertilizer yet, for fear of doing more harm than good. I can get more pix if that would help.
