The Q&A Archives: sick weeeping cherry tree

Question: We have a weeping cherry that's in it's third summer,it bloomed beautiful in the spring but in the last week or so the leaves started to turn yellow and fall off,now the end of the green leaves that are left are turning dark brown and the tree is almost bare.WE sprayed it with Gordons Bordeaux mixture and Agway fruit tree spray before the leaves started falling off.Did we create the problem and what can we do to correct it? Is the tree dying? Will it come back this year? Help? Products we used were recomended by an Agway person

Answer: Based on your description I am not certain what has happened. I would strongly suggest you consult with your local county extension. They should be able to help you diagnose the problem(s) with your tree. Based on knowing that, if it is something that requires a chemical control then they will also have the most up to date information on what to use and how/when to apply it for maximum results. They would also be able to help you develop an appropriate routine care and maintenance program for the tree. I am sorry you are having trouble with your tree.
