Our 6 year old eucalyptus tree was doing great until this winter when we had snow and ice and cold temperature more than usual. Now most of the leaves are brown and it looks bad. It is putting out green leaves on the trunk of the tree and most of the branches have some green. Is there anything we should do or just wait to see if it gets back to where it was?

These trees can survive cold spells for short periods with only leaf loss as damage. You may simply need to give the tree some more time, as it may come back without any major problems.
