|Can these be trimmed and what is the best way to trim them? Ours split during snow storms and we tied the three pieces together but do not know if it will recover and think we need to trim them.

|You can trim away any dead or damaged material. Try not to top them - don't make them level at the top - but instead prune each damaged branch off and then trim the healthy ones at random lengths so the plant has a natural look on top. It's easier to do than to explain! Best wishes with your arborvitae.
