Winter injury, late season

Seems that we had another severe winter, especially in western Minnesota. There is a lot of winter injury to hardwoods across much of the state. The injury is especially evident in Siberian elm and hard maples. Some of this injury in the maples is related to the previous severe winter of 1995-96! The dramatically cool spring resulted in very late foliage development across much of the south and west parts of the state.
