I have a rose bush where all the stems look dead, but there are green leaves coming from the bottom. If the branches are indeed dead... do I cut them all the way down to the bottom ? I live in colorado and it is May 15th

You can always cut off anything dead.

In that case, the growth at the bottom might well be rootstock. It's common for rootstock to take off when the scion dies. YOU DON'T WANT IT. Buying a new rose is probably your best bet.
