|We planted a pomegranate tree 3 years ago ( Dallas, TX). Last year it was amazing, bloomed and we had fruits. November frost came as the tree was still covered with green leaves.
This spring, on the very bottom, close to the roots we see green young branches either directly grown off the roots, or as little green leaf / little branch on one of the major, thick branches on the bottom - but the rest of my tree seems to be rather dead.
Will it rise back to life, will the little green twig form a new tree, or what should we expect? Should we cut off all of the dry branches and hope that the little newly formed twigs ( off the roots) will grow?

|You certainly may as well cut off all the dead parts. If the tree was grafted, the new bottom growth may be from the root stock. Can you tell where it is sprouting from?
