    The arborvitae (ball variety) in the front of my house have fallen over from the weight of the snow and some of the stalks have broken. I know that I can't do anything until spring, but I have got to decide what to do then. They are about 54" tall and have been laid over by the snow and ice. With getting the plow ready for the season, I forgot to tie them up. What do you suggest?????

    you could try tying them back into shape using pantyhose so as not to damage them further.
