Weeping Cherry Trees

Weeping cherry tree may be destroyed

A large tree fell on my weeping cherry tree. All that is left is trunk and about 5 limbs that are 1 to 2 feet long. Is there any certain way to trim end of limbs so tree will grow back?

At this point, the only thing I'd recommend is recutting the limb where it's broken. With a smooth end, pathogens and pests will have a more difficult entering limb tissue. You might want to seal the fresh cut with ''tree sealer'' or paint.
