Cherry tree broke?

Hi newbie here! I was just wondering if any like minded gardeners could help me?
I have a cherry tree which got blown down with the wind and snapped off however i managed to rescue a branch, it has been in some water for almost 2 weeks now to see if i could get it to grow some new roots but i can't see any as of yet but it is still managing to grow new leaves.
Do any of you know what i could next please. I am more than greatful for any advice that you can give!
Regards
BG

A severed branch won't root, but if there are still branches attached to the tree they can be layered; bent to the ground and covered with some earth and a rock to hold it in place... within a couple of months that branch will root and can be cut from the parent tree and will become a whole new tree. There are various methods of layering but I've had the most success with the method I've described.

Thanks for the advice looks like i may have to give up trying to rescue it because when the wind blew it down it snapped from the bottom of the tree. Thanks anyway. I will have consider maybe getting some plants that are wind resistant!!

As is typical with stone fruit it's very likely a cherry tree will sprout from its trunk... if above the graft you'll soon have your tree back. Clean the trunk wound of splintered wood and apply a tree dressing to keep moisture out, then sit back and wait.
