Wind: Problem

Broadleaf evergreens are most easily affected by low temperatures and heavy wind, but other plants can succumb as well. Plants in sheltered and shaded sites deal with sudden temperature drops, but plants in open and sunny locations are especially vulnerable.

In these conditions, needles, stems, buds, and leaves give up moisture that cannot be replaced when the ground is frozen, leading to leaf burn (when the midsection of leaves become overheated and damaged) and dieback (when twigs and seedlings die leaving the main plant vulnerable).
