Planted 2 Cherry Blossom Trees about 2 yrs ago...this year one of them Leafed only 1/3rd of the Branches the remaining 2/3rd's are bare...it was suggested to clip the bare Branches back to the Leaf...I am reluctant and would rather wait til' next year in the hope of full Leaf as both Trees are alongside each other and to cut back would shorten one Tree by at least 2ft...

Any advice would be appreciated...

Have you scraped back the bark on the leafless branches to see if they are green ??......if not, they are dead, so no point hanging on to them.

Hi Sive...just after doing as you suggested and checked against a live Branch... looks like its a " Short back and sides " for this Cherry Tree...what puzzles me is at the start of the Season the Buds covered the entire Branch...such is Nature... Thanks for your reply...

Oh, I'm sorry to hear that. I am constantly perplexed by trees and what causes all these problems, but where there's life it's worth persevering to see if the tree regains vigour the following year....it may yet surprise you.
