Shocked Hinoki—How to Help It Recover

Swpbills added on November 6, 2017 | Answered

We completed a significant pruning on a hinoki cypress a week ago. Then the weather got cold for several days before warming back up, and the tree is looking very unhappy. I assume we shocked it and probably pruned too much and too late in the season. Is there anything we can do to prevent it from dying as a result?
