Help pruning Bayberry

HHassist's picture

I have several Bayberry shrubs. Each one has not entirely leafed out and does not appear to have any plan to leaf out fully. All of them have bare branches sticking out. I am crushed! Does anyone know why this may have happened? And, should I just go ahead and chop off those apparently dead branches?

I impulsively grabbed the pruners and trimmed off all those dead branches. I do that sort of thing when my bangs get too long, too. I hope that I don't regret it!
