February 2021 will be remembered by Texans and by our trees as the year of the “Deep Freeze”. Multiple days with below-freezing temperatures resulted in the crowns of a noticeable number of trees turning brown and appearing as if the trees had died. As Texas A&M Forest Service reported earlier in the year, many, if not most, of those trees recovered and produced normal levels of foliage during the summer. But even now, more than nine months removed from Winter Strom Uri, Texans are still seeing the effects of the “Deep Freeze”.
