Winter protection of seedlings

I've planted some seedlings (such as Sassafras, Persimmon, and Pawpaw) recently that were started in pots and were transplanted to the ground. My question is this: Is there anything that I should do this winter to protect these small trees? Thanks. Mark in TN.

RE: Winter protection of seedlings
