This winter was rough here and I don't see new growth on my oleander tree.This is it's second winter. All the leaves turned brown. I did trim it back somewhat. Is it possibly dead or just slow in new growth?

I think you need to give your oleander the benefit of the doubt and allow it a few more weeks to recover. Pruning usually prompts new growth within 2-3 weeks. If you still see no new growth by the middle of April, it's likely you never will. Let's hope it recovers so you won't need to replace it.
