  • The Tree Doctor April 20, 2017 >Hi Kathy! Great question and that sounds like a beautiful beech tree! Without seeing your tree, it's tough to give a definitive answer. Chances are your tree leaves may appear a bit tattered as they grow, but, if the tree was in good shape before the cold hit, it should recover! There is a chance, though, that if your tree was small and had small twigs, it could be warped for some time as it tries to recover. Hope this helps, Kathy. We're always here to talk trees!
  • Kathy Carleton April 19, 2017 >I have a very small beautiful tri colored beech that I planted last spring. Everything was good until my leaf buds got frosted this spring and died. We had very early temperatures in 70's then it got seasonably cold. Can the tree be saved ? Thank you
