how to prune a damaged tree/shrub

Zone Portland, Ore 97236 | jesgrl0751 added on February 25, 2017 | Answered

I turned a small shrub (I don't know the name) into a tree and the ice storm has made it look like sticks. I would like to know how and when to cut it back. This shrub has red berries and green leaves which, when new, are red lacy. Thank you

Most shrubs or trees can be treated with ice damage by trimming away the dead plant material.
