Answer: I am so sorry! Ice storms can wreak terrible damage to trees. There is nothing you can do except wait and see. You may find that the most flexible branches are just bent and still frozen into place -- but not broken. Others will be broken or cracked and will need to be trimmed off. You will have to examine each one carefully. Since they are tall, you may want to consult with a professionally trained and certified arborist as to their prognosis and the best way to prune them in terms of their overall shape in the long term.
