Q.Will A Severely Pruned 16 Year Old Weeping Cheer Tree Come Back?

Zone 19348 | Anonymous added on September 28, 2021 | Answered

It was left to over grow up. Pruned back last fall. Has only a few branches this spring. Is it worth keeping.

It would depend on how far it has been cut back. Weeping cherries are normally grafted and if it was cut under the graft, you should pull it out. You may get suckers from the root system but they will grow into an ornamental, multi-stemmed shrub within the same family and will not mature to the weeping shape.
