Bottle Brush Tree

We live in Houston and we had a hard freeze this winter. Should we trim the brown/dead branches off the tree? The dead brown branches seem to be the top ones as it's blooming below.

It's best to wait a few more months before pruning. The damaged branches may still recover and put out leaves, but they'll be delayed. If they still don't put out any leaves or flowers by mid-summer, you can prune them off.
