Q: My aspen trees seem to be leafing out early this year. Will a freeze or snow damage my tree?
A: If it is a deep enough freeze the leaves will die off and the tree will produce a new set. This can be stressful for the tree but it can handle it as long as it happens less than a few times.
If it is a lighter freeze the leaves may not fall off but there most likely will be damage to the leaf. The leaves will appear with black spots on them and unfortunately there is nothing that can be done about this.
