Should I wrap my arborvitae (about 4-5 tall) to protect them from winter snow?

If the branches are tight and the shrub is compact, snow shouldn't bend the branches down. If there's lots of fairly young and supple growth, wrapping the shrubs will help keep those branches upright. If you're not sure whether or not the branches are strong enough to stay upright, go ahead and wrap your plant - wrapping won't hurt it at all.
