Pear Sapling apparently dead but buds at the base
I have a 4 year old pear sapling that didn't make the winter. The stems do not show vital buds. At the trees base, close to the ground there are some buds starting. I was wondering how, or if, I can salvage the established root system and let some of these buds continue to grow, cutting the dead 95% of the tree. It's a sentimental thing to keep.
