    I have been having the same trouble with my weeping cherry. I don’t know how many more years I can keep cutting off the dead stuff but now I know what will most likely happen down the road. Damn.

    I put one in maybe 10 years back. Had hopes for a couple of years and prayers for two more before the axe. The garden center was full of them the year I bought it. In going around town, I have not seen another one alive.

    BTW, the weeping part is a graft on a normal cherry base. That seems to create or contribute to the problem. Mine was much like yours final days with sides failing but in miniature.

    I still very much miss the big, beautiful oak we lost to a storm a couple of years ago. For awhile thereafter, I imagined I could hear the remaining trees in our front yard keening at night over our collective loss. We’ve replanted in the spot it left behind, but…it’s not the same at all.
