Is this tree salvageable?
We have a weeping cherry tree, which, because of the surrounding homes and trees, is leaning pretty significantly over our sun room. (See photos - not the best, but hopefully shows the shape.)
It has some kind of pest (tent caterpillars?), so we've already cut off some infected and dying branches. There's one we can't reach at the very top. My question is, if we have the tops of the tallest branches taken off, will it be OK and eventually start to look more like an umbrella? Right now, none of its upper branches are bending over. We've trimmed a lot of branches from neighboring trees to give it more sun from the opposite side, so we're hoping they won't be as big an issue now.
Thanks in advance!
