My white bird of paradise tree has some damaged leaves due to the receint frost. I would like to cut the damaged branches off but the base seem to be part of the tree & I dont want to cut the branch in the middle. How do I cut the entire branch without damaging the tree?

You can simply cut the damaged branches off, as close as possible to their point of origin. Leaving a stub is okay - new growth will eventually cover it. You should see vigorous new growth as soon as the weather warms up. Best wishes with your white bird of paradise.
