Weeping Cherry Trees

Will a Improperly Trimmed Weeping Cherry Tree Survive?

Someone trimmed my weeping cherry tree by cutting it almost down to its single trunk. All of the extending branches were cut almost to the base trunk and I am wondering if this tree will ever grow back.

It is hard to say. It may, but that is a lot of branches to be removed. Even if it does survive, it could be years before the branches would regrow to the point where they were before. You may want to consider replacing the tree.
