Q.Most of a pine tree gone in wind storm
Last night we had a bad wind storm and it took most of a pine tree. The only thing left is around 4 lower branches. Some of the bark is gone from the trunk and the trunk has moss on it. Is there any way a tree can come back from this or would it be better to take it down?

Here are three articles about wind damage and chance of recovery. Based on these articles, I would suggest removing it. You really have nothing left to shape.
