About three years ago my beautiful full-grown magnolia was hit by an ice storm. I watched as the top leaves turned dark green. I have hoped that it would recover but all of the leaves are brown now. Last year it put out horizontal branches and leaves but they are now dead. This year I have some leaves coming out at the bottom. Would pruning help? I think the trunk cracked at the top. I read some of the posts to other magnolia questions. I've been searching for information online because I don't know what to do and I don't want to kill the tree if it can be saved. I don't have the money to hire a professional. Can anyone advise me? The tree is about two stories high and it was so beautiful. I don't want to cut it down.
