Tree slow to recover from from frost damage
In relation to one of your previous questions about a frost damaged cornus controversa, I also have one (planted in January) that got frost causing all the buds to go black. I removed some of these tips but even at this late stage there is nearly no leaves on it. Apart from a few black spots the stems seem healthy. Is there anything I can do to improve it's chances? Also is there any point trying to grow paulownia this far north for flower display?

Cornus might yet recover from frost damage, just be sure that slugs and snails do not get at any new shoots.
Paulownia is worth trying and will flower after a couple of good summers, and the foliage is great in any case.
