Last summer we had a terrible wind and hail storm. My sapling Shade Master locust tree was damaged. The hail took off a lot of bark but did not take it much past the green under bark and did not garret the tree either. I hoped it would recover. This spring it is coming out, but the ends of the branches are dead and a lot of the greenery seems to be sucker type. I’m wondering if I should cut the dead areas of the branches back and watch the growth to see what is suckers or regular new growth? Should I consider the tree lost and start over?
