A branch of a young citrus tree, damaged from freezing temperatures, droops at Ranch One Co-Operative in Immokalee, Fla. on Wednesday, Dec. 15, 2010. Overnight temperatures dipped into the mid-20s inland and Mike Jones, harvesting manager for the farm, said there was some damage from the cold, but it was too early to tell how extensive it was. In the meantime, citrus harvesting increased at the 2,400 acre property to combat potentially damaged trees. Greg Kahn/Staff
