Will my angel trumpet tree come back this spring
I have an angel trumpet tree next to my pond and it froze last week. The branches are all hollow and for all that it seems, it's dead. It is in the ground and is about 10 feet tall. I live in Galveston Tx. Not accustomed to sudden freezes. Will it come back??

I think you are referring to brugmansia. They can come back, as long as the roots did not freeze. It may take a few years for it to regain its previous height, but it will regrow from the roots.
Because this year's weather has been so erratic, if possible, I would recommend that you take steps to protect the roots for the rest of the season. If possible, try to cover them with straw or mulch to help insulate them.
