What Is Wrong With My Weeping Cherry Tree
My cherry tree is about 6-7 years old. It has been doing great until about two years ago and I noticed that the limbs were getting shorter and shorter, although it would still bloom. This spring the limbs are at the very top of the tree and no more the 5-6 feet long. Why would the limbs stop growing?

If the tree had a tip blight or thrips, it is possible that all the new growth was killed off. This would leave the old growth alone and the tree is still relatively healthy, its just that new branches would form. Did you see any small shriveled branches fall to the ground in the past? This is normally an indicator of thrips or tip blight.
