Trees still The timing of the hard freeze that occurred last fall in the Bighorn Basin seems to have taken a toll on trees that were not yet dormant. Mac Smith, Northwest Area Extension Educator for University of Wyoming Extension, said this week that she's been getting a lot of questions and concerns from the community about brown trees -- especially evergreens. So she put the question to Karen Panter, a UW horti- culture specialist. Panter explained, "Last fall seemed to last forever, until we hit a temperature nosedive in November. Many of our ornamental plants had not fully gone into dorman- cy when the cold temperatures hit. As a result, many of them, both woody and herbaceous perennials, suffered major freeze damage. Here, according to Panter, is what to look for: Blackened leaves and stems Evergreens are most susceptible Dieback from the outside of the plant inward (brown color) Woody plant bark may develop vertical cracks, espe- cially on the south sides of the trunks. Bark can also completely split all the way around, girdling the plant and essentially killing it. "There is not much to be done about it the damage that has occurred," said Panter. "When spring arrives, assess perennial plants for damage. Branches that have died back will stay brown and not leaf out. These should be pruned off. Once frost damage has occurred, there is no magic remedy, other than pruning and proper cultural care during the growing season. "We have probably lost many of our evergreens, both broad-leaf and conifers, due to last fall's cold snap. If the plant is brown and does not send out new growth in the spring, remove it as it will not recover." Added Smith, "This winter you can water evergreens when the temperatures are warm and the ground is thawed enough for the water to penetrate. This will re- duce the stress on trees and make them less susceptible to insect and tree damage. This will continue to plague us through the growing season." iiiiiiiii Li i iliiiiiii!!ii!iiiiiiii iii i!iiiiiiiiii?
