I've had this happen once to an Early Cort apple tree. The advice I followed
then was to keep the tree from drying out by misting it daily to hopefully
help keep the buds soft enough to pop. It took a good part of that summer for
it to leaf out to maybe 50%. It took about three years to recover from what
was assumed to be freeze damage caused by the second frost in mid Oct. or 15F
after a warm fall in '96.
