Q.Treatment of Frozen Bay Magnolia Trees

Anonymous added on January 30, 2011 | Answered

My two bay magnolias are covered with ice and bent to the ground. Should I attempt to thaw them out before they break? If so, will pouring water on them help or hinder the situation? Any advice will be appreciated. They have been in the ground just over two years.

I am sorry to hear about your plants. Removing the ice would be good, but do so only with cold water. Warm or hot water will kill them. If they are still alive, make sure that ice does not build up on them again.
