One of the dogwoods. I can't remember its species name. The one they plant in roadside and large scale plantings, seeds about   

Might not be so commonly planted now, there seems to be more of an emphasis on native plantings

Good idea pansyface. I wouldn't go down the chemical road anyway. There is no end to that and it's not a joy to behold as the process goes on. That's agricultural practice round here, it looks really naff

I wouldn't tackle too much at once. As soon as you kill anything, something else will move in. I have an ancient hover mower that I use to keep weeds down in areas where hogweed/bramble/nettle have taken over. It sorts out nettles, they can't take mowing.

I think the leaves are distorted, it makes it diificult to ID. Is the root a real tuber or more like a carrot or parsnip root (on a smaller scale)?

Is my cherry dying?

I fear that is not very well and may not survive. Don't let it become dry but don't over-water, it isn't taking up much water in that condition. Planted 2 years ago it should be romping away by now and shouldn't be needing extra watering so early in the season.
