My fig tree branches are not producing leaves, look dead but the branches do not seem dead, dry or brittle. A small new growth is at the bottom of the trunk of the tree. Should I go ahead and prune the empty branches or give it more time? This is a 2 year old tree, produced small fruits last year and reached about 4 feet in height. The tree was given to me. It is planted in full sun near a thriving vegetable garden. I am located in Baltimore MD and we did have a very harsh winter this year. I am afraid the ice and snow may severely damaged it.
