Q.Weeping Cherry Tree Did Not Come Back After Winter, But Has Growth At Base. What To Do?

Zone Zone 5 | Anonymous added on May 20, 2022 | Answered

This tree was planted one year ago. It did not come back this spring, but it has green growth around the very base of it. Should I cut the base growth to get energy into the trunk and branches? Or is it a lost cause. The rest of the tree looks dead.

It likely was a grafted variety, so the new growth is coming from the rootstalk and will not look like your weeping tree. It is a lost cause.
