my 3 year old orange tree got frosted, and looks dead. What can I do to help it ? Triming, fertilizer, anything? I will be leaving Florida at the end of March, and returning late nov.

Wait until the very last minute before you leave and prune the dead limbs/branches off your citrus tree. By then you'll be able to see the extent of the frost damage. Prune it back to new growth and then feed with a specially formulated citrus fertilizer. It should be fine by the time you return in November.
