Wax leaf ligustrum
We had a week and a half cold snap ( got down to -3) and now all the leaves on my ligstrums turned brown and many/ most have dropped off. What should I do? I have over 400 of them in a rather long privacy hedge. Can I save them?

There is not much that needs to be done now. You can cut the branches back a little bit after the weather warms back up some, but other than that it will recover on its own just fine.
