Weeping cherry tree question

Asked January 5, 2020, 9:01 AM EST

Our weeping cherry is growing sideways-- is there a way to make it grow taller. It has a diameter 2x of height?

This is expected in weeping type trees. The growth is meant to cascade downward. Occasionally a branch may form that produces upright growth but these are usually pruned off to maintain the weeping habit.
