How to Care for My Cherry Tree

Cherry trees -- with their beautiful, green foliage and deep-red cherries at harvest time -- are excellent additions to any garden, lawn or orchard. Cherry trees are rather easy to care for. In fact, it is crucial to care for these trees properly, because they are highly susceptible to insect infestations and fungus. When cherry trees receive the proper care and are situated in an ideal growing environment, they will yield bushels of sun-ripened cherries every growing season.

Instructions

1 Purchase the cherry tree of your choice from your local garden speciality store or plant nursery. Cherry trees come in different varieties, so make sure you purchase a variety that will grow well in your area.

2 Plant the cherry tree in an area that has deep, well-drained soil and receives full sun for most of the day. Fruit trees will bare more fruit when provided with plentiful sun. Dig a hole that is big enough for the tree's root system. Distribute the roots within the hole, making sure to keep the tree upright. Back-fill the hole with soil and tamp down gently, but firmly, to stabilise the tree. Water the tree to distribute the soil around the roots. If needed, add more soil and water again to eliminate any air pockets around the roots.

3 Use sharp shears to prune the cherry tree during the spring season, after the last frost has passed. Use a step ladder to help you reach the higher portions of the tree. For the first three years of the tree's life, prune 18 to 24 inches from the tree's branches to induce lateral growth and fruit production. After the first few years, your cherry tree will need only minimal annual pruning.

4 Drape the cherry tree with bird netting after pruning in the spring. The bird netting should remain in place throughout the entire growing season to keep birds from feasting on the cherries. You can purchase bird netting from your local garden speciality store or from an online retailer.

5 In autumn, apply a thick layer of mulch or compost around the base of the tree to help insulate the tree's roots and promote healthy growth the following spring. You may remove the mulch in the spring; alternatively, it may be left in place until the next autumn, when you replace the old mulch with new mulch.
