Assessing the Damage

The winter storms were hard on some of our plants and trees. My husband is concerned about this tree (bottom photo, above) that separates our yard from a neighbor who keeps a junk pile going in view at all times.
I confess to being sad about the smashed lavender and freeze-dried rhododendron.  There’s little doubt that the rhodie is over and done for, but I hope someone can help me save the lavender.
Still, it could have been so much worse –after all, we aren’t having to replace our roof –so I’m filing this under  “Thankful Thursday.”

Any suggestions or experience with plants?
