Buds look good!

Here are a couple of images that show buds that we looked at yesterday. As I mentioned before, buds are tight and at the stage when they should be most dormant.  We did not see any damage to all but one of the buds we evaluated (20+ buds).

The first image is of a healthy bud, this is typical of the many buds we sliced longitudinally.

This image was from Navaho, but all other cultivars including those from the Pacific Northwest looked healthy.
Red arrow points to healthy bud.

This is from a small weak lateral, cut from the tip of a plant:
