Kilmarnock Willow frost damage

Reply Wed 9 May, 2012 02:03 pm
I have a young tree planted 1 year ago (about 3 ft.tall) I think it sustained some frost damage over the winter, and is now sprouting leaves only from the bottom half. The top branches aren't real brittle, but also have no leaves (The lower ones came out over a month ago) I am wondering if I should prune it at this point, or just leave it alone and hope it recovers ) I bought this tree from a nursery last year, and unfortunately they went out of business so I can't ask them........Sad Any advice would be helpful.....thanks!

I'd leave it alone. Prune for shape, but don't cut off the branches.

The unusual warm weather caused a lot of plants and trees to leaf out too early, then we got frosts and cold nites, so many plants are showing burned leaves.

Give it the benefit of the doubt. Especially since you said the branches are not brittle (dead)
