arborvitaes and snow

Now that all the heavy snows from the storms we've had all winter in the NE are melting, will the arborvitaes come back from the damage they've sustained? Mine have been bent, broken, and frozen into the ground for a couple months.

RE: arborvitaes and snow

Arborvitae are very hardy trees and have been shrugging off winters for much longer than we have with few problems. If the snow load has broken some branches then those will need to be properly pruned once the snow has melted, but bent branches will spring back into place and any branches pushed to the ground and frozen there will also.

RE: arborvitaes and snow will simply have to be patient. You will be able to see the damage from some winter damage fairly quickly, but other issues may show up much later in the late spring or early summer.
