Weeping cherry tree low on flowers

Asked May 18, 2017, 3:29 PM EDT

I have a weeping cherry tree about 12-15 yes old. It only has flowered on the bottom 10-12 inches the past 3 years. Thinking about cutting it way back. High off the ground. Do you think that would help it return to full bloom? Thank you for any info you can give. Julia.
