I reported earlier this year that I noticed my male had shed bark at the 
base of its' trunk, apparently girdling the plant. I noticed some bark 
cracking and exposed cambium on a female as well.Later this spring, they 
were frozen back after leafing out 2-3 inches.

I am amazed now to see both plants sporting healthy new foliage, barely 
the worse for wear.

I am impressed by their resilience.
