    0CFA1117-441A-41AA-BD1C-D103040D4323.jpeg 3 years ago we planted this cherry tree in the front garden to screen our window. It was fan shaped and bushy from the base of each branch.

    This year the leaves tended to only flourish nearer the extremities of the branches. Is it too late to prune it back now? It’s to remain mild for at least a week. Also, will reducing each branch by 20% encourage new growth from the base of the graft? Should I thin out whole branches entirely?
