    I'm going to say no. If they do it will take a long time and the new growth will be discolored from the rest. I have seen some start like that and slowly die off.

    I say yes. Cut back the dead broken branches. Looks like they have already started to grow. I would guess it will take 1.5-2 summers to be back to normal. Would help to juice em up with slow release fert in spring.

    What earthworker said. The "dead" wood will never have new growth so go ahead and prune it out. New growth will start at the point of prune.You need to know what caused that die back to prevent it from happening again.

    No, it will not totally fill out like it used to. At least, that is my experience

    They look pretty well established over 3-years? if so lots of nitrogen and water they should be back by Oct. If younger it will take longer. New ones will not do much until year 2 in my experience. 1st year they sleep 2nd year they creep and 3rd year they leap. My mantra.
