Norfolk Pines

Zone 77504 | circuspeanut202 added on April 23, 2017 | Answered

I live in the Houston/Pasadena, Texas area. This past winter we had 2 days of freezing temps back to back. My Norfolk pine is in a 24" pot and is about 12' tall. After the freeze, the tips of the branches started turning brown and the leaves falling off. Is there anything I can do to try to save it? I am well known for bringing dying plants back to life. This one has me stumped!!

The best thing you can do is just give the tree its usual care and avoid overwatering. Wait a few months to see if it's beginning to recover, and at that point you can prune off dead foliage. Norfolk pines don't usually grow back well, though, so it will probably never look the same.
