That looks more like fungal damage, then it does cold damage.

Make sure to only water when the soil is completely dry down to about 3 inches in the soil.

From here, you can go a few different routes. My preferred method is a HANDFUL of DOLOMITIC LIME and a TABLESPOON of WETTABLE SULFUR per tree. This is a good preventative, and spot treatment for infections. You can do this once or twice a year, also.

The other option will be spray fungicides. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/info/using-fungicides-in-garden.htm
