Q.I Have Japanese Blueberry Trees That Are Damaged From The Recent Freeze.

reggieut@aol.com added on March 17, 2021 | Answered

They are 9 years old and stand 15-20′ tall. Prior to the freeze, they were in excellent condition. Now, all the leaves are a light brown. What do I need to do?

Your area is not mentioned, but I think that I can assume that you are somewhere that does not experience cold that often. These trees do not tolerate freezing temperatures. This is unfortunate, but there is nothing that you can do for frost damage.

The best course of action is to prune off any branches that are completely dead, and brittle. If that is any life left to the branch, then leave it, or just cut the tip off. What is left alive may recover.

Here is an article that will offer some tips for maintaining these trees:
