Freeze Damage on Trees and Shrubs

Whether it is my avocado or Key Lime tree or guava bush or Barbados Cherry tree here in Tampa, or a rose bush or apple tree or stone fruit in a cold climate, the best way to detect and remove freeze-killed branches is to wait until spring growth reveals the extent of the dead wood before pruning. It is a good thing I waited, as those two nights of 27 degrees did LESS damage than I thought and I would have pruned off live branches. John
