No obvious freeze damage here near Houston. Got to 26F last night, the same tonight.

Did  you notice all the young replants throughout the grove?   Probably replacement trees dead from greening.

I notice the pure sand they are 'hydroponically' those trees in.

Most of the video seemed to be shot from a drone to me ! I saw lots of small replants all through the grove.
