It looks like you may continue to get frosty weather for a few more weeks so hold off on doing anything at all until the weather warms up. When you see new growth you can prune away the winter damage. Usually frost only damages the leaves and branch tips - the rest of the branches, the trunk and the roots should survive the weather. Let's hope for warmer weather!
