The Q&A Archives: Cherry Tree

Question: One limb on my cherry tree has turned brown. What's up?

Answer: The dead limb may be a result of winter damage, or of insect of disease problems. Remove the dead limb and inspect it for signs of bore holes, cankers, sap, etc. If you find signs of insects or diseases you can treat the entire tree; if the limb looks sound (but dead), I'd suspect winter damage.
