OK, smart farmer people or horticulturist types (you know who you are), I have a question for you.
We had, as I'm sure you know from my moaning, a very hard freeze a couple of days ago (down to 8 degrees--I think it may have even been our first frost for the fall?). The trees were still fully leafed with only a few starting to show a touch of yellow when it hit. Now I'm seeing trees all over town, mature trees which are typical for this climate, with dead looking brown or stale brownish-green leaves and no real leaf fall yet.
Are they likely to have been killed or merely shocked with a little bit of branch tip die back in the spring, or are they going to come back pretty much unscathed (if the rest of our winter is typical)? I know the young or marginal for our area trees are at risk, but how about the older ones?
I live for trees.
