cherry tree


I had this cherry tree as a gift last year, I am a complete beginner gardener, I am not sure if he is in a good health, he doesn't have any leaf. 

Where should I keep him, how much water should I give him, if I need to cut him to help him grow, any help is welcome, looking at this picture do you think he is still alive?

    Oh dear .... I'm very sorry to say that I think your cherry tree is dead.

    Not if it's dead, which it looks like it is.
