CHALLENGES
Cherry trees are fairly tough and with the right care , you should be able to avoid any problems . Depending on your area , specific diseases and pests can occur , including bacterial canker , root phytophthora , brown rot , powdery mildew , apple maggots and bollworm . Of course , birds will also enjoy your cherries , so you could consider fine netting to deter them and save your harvest . You might also want to encircle the trunk of each tree with a wire cage or protective pipe to protect it from animal and insect pests . Young cherry trees are especially at risk from insects that bore into the main trunk .
PRUNING
During the growing season , choose two or three leader branches that will grow upwards , removing the lower branches . Soon , lateral branches will begin to develop on the leaders . These shouldn ’ t become stronger than the leaders , so cut them back in summer if they threaten to take over .
