    Hi. I am a new member here as well. We purchased a weeping cherry tree 2 years ago and it was doing fine until this Spring. I noticed many branches that were dead so I clipped them off and of course, the branches were NOT green but brown/dead. Now, I just noticed yesterday that the bark has a lot of “fungus” or something on them. The color of this is sort of a greenish-white. Sunday, prior to looking at the tree planted last year, we went to a nursery and purchased another one....totally in error. They were both expensive ($125). Now, I’m afraid the brand new one is going to get the same “disease”. Can anybody please help me with this problem? Do I need to put something on the tree to halt this disease? Please help! I’m desperate and worried!

    Thank you so much.

    Cherries are pest and disease susceptible. For best results here show good close views of affected parts.
