When we moved to this property 9 years ago our weeping cherry was blooming. Over the past 5 years it has slowly declined in flowering until now it only flowers around the bottom area where I prune the most. The tree is over 10 feet high. Is it not blooming because Im not pruning all over?

Also I have 2 small dogwoods about 8 feet now that I planted 3 years ago that bloomed the first year but have not bloomed since. The leaves are lush and the plants look to be healthy.

It seams to me, you need to prune them all.

Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

Ive thought that might be the case with the cherry but dogwoods grow wild in the woods and flower and never get pruned?

I definitely would not prune the dogwoods. They are probably too young to bloom even though the conditions they were grown in before you bought them may have caused them to bloom prematurely.
They will bloom when they're ready and pruning will not help them.
