Weeping Cherry Tree having issues
I have a weeping cherry tree in my yard that has about a 6 inch diameter trunk. I just bought my house as a foreclosure earlier this year and the tree bloomed really pretty in the spring but now the tree is looking very bare underneath and unhealthy. I also noticed the trunk has some large sore spots, but I am not sure if that is normal or not. In the summer the leaves started getting preforated and I was told theat was from Japanese Beetles so I sprayed the tree with Sevin. I am not sure if the tree is going dormant early due to the drought and crazy hot weather we had this summer. Can someone please take a look at these pics and tell me what is going on? I would really appreciate any help i can get.
