What Houzz contributors are saying:

Noelle Johnson Landscape Consulting added this to Southwest Gardener's March Checklist
When you're pruning frost-damaged trees and shrubs, it can be hard to tell which parts are dead and which parts are still alive. Often when plants are frost damaged, they lose most of their leaves. But even though a branch may be leafless, it doesn't mean that the entire branch is dead. The clue to knowing which parts are alive is to look closely at the branches, which will tell you where to make your pruning cut. The part of the branch that is still alive will start to leaf out, while the parts that are dead won't. Make your pruning cut 1/4 inch above the point where the new growth occurs.Wait until new growth appears before pruning.
