Should I prune fig tree that's not waking up?

10 years ago

I wrapped my fig tree with blankets and tarps but this year there is just no sign of budding and in previous years the wrapping has worked fine. There are a lot of brown, stiff branches and I can't tell if they are dead but they're definitely not as bendy as I recall they should be. Should I do a very aggressive prune now or give it more time? It's almost June and no signs of life. Thanks for any input out there.
