Q.weeping cherry tree

Zone 41139 | kimberly.snyder added on May 24, 2018 | Answered

So, my husband thought he was being sweet by trimming the weepiness from my tree. GRRRRR!!! There is literally 5ft from the bottom of branches to the ground. Please tell me that they will grow back, & it will look like a weeping cherry tree again?!

This is, actually, a common method for trimming these, and will cause no harm. It will grow back fairly quickly, and you will have to do this again by next year. This article will help you prune these in the future: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/weeping-cherry/pruning-weeping-cherry.htm
