I have a 20′ high Mimosa tree. A storm took the tree down, the only part standing is the trunk about 8 feet above the ground. Can the tree be saved?

If all the branches that produced leaves are gone, the tree is unlikely to make it. Mimosas are known for having frail wood and for often not living very long, so it might be better to cut the trunk down to prevent it from falling at some point. Mimosas can be propagated from its seeds, so you could plant a replacement if you have seed pods left.
