Trumpet Vines

If I Prune 3 Inch Diameter Branches of a Trumpet Vine, Now, Will It Die?

A severe storm snapped off the top 1/3 of my trumpet vine support, which was a tree. Now it is hanging down with its heavy branches disengaged from the severed treetop. The vine itself doesn't look damaged but it may break off if it's allowed to hang much longer. Will I shock it and can it die if I saw the top branches off? It's sad cause it was beautiful. I hate to cut it, but it's too heavy to try and build.

For most plants, I would say this might cause problems. But for trumpet vines, I think you should be ok. They are perhaps one of the hardest to kill plants in North America. They can take alot of damage and keep on going.
