Would you trim the dead/dying?

Today I unfortunately dropped my new pocillopora colony while trying to secure it to a rock. Needless to say it broke into a bunch of pieces. I already glued the pieces down into spots I think they will do well or onto a frag disk. My question is tho now that the mother colony is so exposed I can see some parts that aren't so alive. Should I leave this? Trim it up?Click image for larger version

I would leave it. Maybe some new exposure to your lighting will help it out.
