Need help to save a dying cherry tree

zic786July 31, 2014

I live in Chicago. I planted a cherry tree in my backyard in 2009. Last year, it bore a few cherries. This year it did not bear any fruit. Instead its leaves are turning brown and it looks like it is dying.

I am not very knowledgeable in gardening. I would appreciate your advice to save this tree. Thanks,

crikey ...

it didnt bear fruit because of the intense cold winter .. the buds were all killed.. just like every fruit tree in my yard just south of ann arbor ...

of all the leaves in the pic.. is see two that are not perfect..

your tree is not dying ...

and frankly.. if by august.. i didnt see a few yellow leaves on a prunus.. i would begin to suspect its not a prunus ...

lets see a pic of the whole.. to decide if there is enough leaves affected to merit a discussion of a problem..

BTW.. i just had 4 weeks of drought and high heat.. my cheery tree is leafless... with that in mind.. your looks pretty fat and happy ....

give us some more facts.. than just this pic.. and emotion ... drought.. heat.. etc
