Snow typically damages the crown and the outer branches rather than the middle of the tree so I wonder if there's something else going on - a safe haven for insects, perhaps? Check the center of the tree for spider mites or other pests. Look for webbing on the stems or cast skins from aphids. If you find insect pests collect a few and take them to your nursery for identification. You can spray your tree to control them, once you determine what they are. Best wishes with your trees.
