Trimmed bald cypress tree branches
My son cut a lot of branches off of a bald cypress tree, some clear back to the trunk! Will these grow back or is the tree ruined? The tree is about 6 feet tall.

Well the branches won't grow new growth from where they've been cut back, but it doesn't mean the tree won't survive. I just can't say how it will respond. Leave it alone and see how it reacts to the severe pruning.
