Trees leafing low on the trunk.
Last year I planted fruit trees from Stark Bros and they did ok all last year.
This spring we had a warm snap and then some heavy snow and frost in the first week of May.
The whole area has been delayed with getting leaves on bushes, but half of my young fruit trees only sprouted leaves on the bottom 1/3 of the trunk.
I had loose black plastic pipe casing the trunks to stop the rabbits, and I think it acted as a heat blanket to keep them from being as badly affected by the frost.
Should I let the trees try to grow back from these lower sprouts or replant? Are the couple that have nothing sprouted at all completely dead?
