|I would recommend against topping a cherry tree (or any tree for that matter). It's easier to find a tree that grows to the height and width you want than to try to keep a large tree small. Continually pruning your cherry tree to keep it small will eventually weaken it, and make it more prone to diseases as it matures. If you have a small space and want a weeping cherry tree, plant a dwarf weeping cherry. It matures at 10-12' in height and won't need constant pruning to keep the size controlled. Best wishes with your landscape.
