One of my small Acer trees took a real hit this past Winter. I was beginning to think I had lost it altogether. This is what it looked like in May 2009:
At first glance this year it looked as though there was only one tiny bit which was still living but it hasn't quite given up the struggle for life just yet:
Though the end of the branches had been frozen enough to kill them off and only one new leaf has grown there are lots of new shoots sprouting as can be seen on the inset photo. Hopefully with a bit of TLC it will eventually make a good recovery.
