Will Magnolia Tree With Limbs Removed ReGrow Branches

Question From: S. Lee - Vienna, Virginia, United States
Q: Hi! I was at a closing nursery today.. They have a 15 to 20 foot maglolia missing its branches! Big green leaves are growing up the trunk. The trunk looks healthy. It's a sad tree that I want to help! They will sell it to me for $50. If I buy it, will it grow branches?

A: The top branches will never recover. Pass on it . Best Nancy
