flowering cherry tree

Posted by ron spencer , May 03,2005,11:09       Forum

Here in west central Scotland all our neighbours have the usual splendid display of blossom on their cherry tees. Alas, not ours! It was pruned by about 12 feet all round in the summer of 2003 and last year didn't seem to have its usual amount of foliage. This spring it looks dead, with no sign of buds or sap in the twigs. The tree is around 50 -60 years old.Is there the slightest hope of recovery? Any thoughts would be gratefully received. Thanks.
