Can I prune my Japanese Weeping Cheery tree now, or must I wait til it's dormant? Some of the upper limbs are growing upwards, and it's getting to look wild.

I'm sorry it has taken us so long to answer your question. A weeping cherry tree would best be pruned right after it blooms in the spring. Pruning then allows you to enjoy the blooms, and also allows the tree to heal quickly during the flush of early season growth.
