Tree issues

Asked September 26, 2017, 10:16 AM EDT

A local person called and explained that he has a weeping cherry tree approximately 5-6 years old that isn't looking healthy. For the first couple of years it was very healthy and bloomed a white flower. After that the leaves are green but they are curled up and there are no blooms. The bark seems to be peeling and sometimes a mushroom type fungus will form on the bark. Is there any ideas what could be happening to the tree? What can be done to bring it back? I will try to include pictures if needed.

It would be helpful if you could send us photos, especially of the tree trunk. Was there any physical damage to the tree? Is there any oozing from the trunk? Fungal growth on the bark is usually a sign that the tree is decaying, but it would be helpful to see photos. You can attached up to three images.
