Freeze Damage

The Extension Agent who acts as our MG advisor has kindly forwarded us
commentary from several experts on our recently frozen ornamentals and trees.
Apparently the fruit and nut industry in Tennessee has really suffered as a
result.  One interesting fact noted by our Extension Forester was, "Ideally
homeowners should kill the grass directly below the tree crown, then mulch.
DO NOT fertilize unitl near the end of next winter (Jan/Feb)."  I believe the
intent of this statement is that watering is the most important way to help
our trees recover.
