Dying Flowering Cherry Tree, Regrom from Suckers?
I have a Flowering Cherry tree of unknown origin in my back yard. For the past few years, it has bloomed very nicely in spring, but this year, due to the frigid winter, the tree leafed out, didn't bloom, and is dying back severely now. There are some suckers coming up from the base of the trunk.
Would it make sense to let the suckers grow and see how they progress as they have a full root system? Do these trees regrow fairly well in similar situations?
Attached picture is of the tree at it's best.
