I've an evergreen tree in yard. After last year's snow storm, the top part (app 3 ft from top) bent (see photo). I afraid this year's snow will further bend and/or crack the tree, so I would like to cut the top 3 ft away. If I did this, will the tree continue to grow, or it will die? Need some experienced gardeners to tell me what shall I do with it to protect it and keep it alive. Thank you in advance.
