Seriously, start a small fire in a container close to the base of the
tree and use a good hard wood, try to keep it burning all night...

Run a fan on one side to distribute the heat evenly around the tree.

They used to use heaters/smudge pots and large overhead fans in the
cherry orchards near where I used to live for just such occasions! :-)

Good luck!!!!
