I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!
If they were exposed to freezing temperatures and are completely brown they may have been killed. They should show new grow in the center of the top of the trunk if they are still alive.
Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
