I know many of you are now completely buried in cold, ice, and/or snow. Here in south Kansas, we have only experienced extreme cold thus far, with only a small chance of snow forecast for tonight and into tomorrow. So far, it has been overcast and windy, with temps (before windchill) in the mid to upper teens, but it is supposed to clear off later today, still with wind, and our temps are going to drop to low single digits, again before windchill. For those in the ground, I have wrapped the trunks of my larger trees with the DeWitt tree wrap, and a few of my smaller trees, or those more exposed to wind, are covered with either a double or triple layer of frost fabric or a large pillow case/double layer of burlap (see attached). For those still in pots, they are all grouped together under the deck and up against the house, with leaves piled in between the pots. The large 5-10 g resin pots are on the concrete patio, but the smaller 2-3g fabric pots are on resin shelves (like from the shelving units, ones with holes in them) with leaves underneath that, so they are not directly touching the concrete. Not shown in the attached picture is the burlap I hung up between the house and the deck on either side of the pots to help shield a bit more wind and *hopefully* keep a little more heat in (I am hoping the residual heat given off by the house will help keeps temps up at least a few degrees). Once the cold snap is over, what signs should I look for - or will they even be apparent yet? - to indicate damage? How long can the pots withstand temps like this before the trees start to suffer and potentially die? What is everyone else doing to protect their trees during while this nasty system passes through?
