Recently in New Jersey we had two big snow storms back to back during the first storm my tree split in half and landed on the 10 foot bushes. Does anyone out there knows if the bushes will straighten up on their own, the tree
was removed off the bushes and they are still leaving over does it take a while for them bounce back up?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.Here are some images it seems that the middle of the bushes are holding some of the other branches down, do you think I should prune them down and will they come back. Also when is the best time to prune in we are dealing with 40 degrees during the day and the mid to high 20's some nights in NJ. Shall I wait to prune back till they start budding more and the weather gets warmer?
I do not want to do any more damage to them..

Your going to need to pull them back straight, then most likely secure them with stake/s and twine.
I'd holed off pruning till weather warms some.
