Q.Yaupon Holly Tree

Anonymous added on March 8, 2011 | Answered

The recent snow storms in Texas has destroyed many of my trees. Some have been taken down, but I am trying save my 20-year-old Yaupon Holly tree. It has three trunks and has lost the front of the tree. Can you cut the trunks across and still save the tree? Will it send new growth off the tree that is left, or should I just take it all the way down?

It should send off new growth, but the new growth will be bushier than it was before. If this is ok, then go ahead and do what you propose.
