Is My Crepe Myrtle Tree Dead

Anonymous added on April 29, 2011 | Answered

I think I may have pruned my crepe myrtle tree too early. There is new growth at the base of the tree, but the branches seem dead. Perhaps, it is just dormant. Gosh, I hope so. . . I pruned it in December. I hope you can give me some good news.
