I have 9 arborvitaes that I planted from 1 gallon pots that I hoped would serve as a screen. They are over 5 feet tall now. They have done great up till this past winter. They have some green, but are pretty brown otherwise. I am wondering if I should pull them out, or if there is hope for them. I hate to shear them, but maybe that is the only solution if I want to keep them. I tried to water them during the very dry and warm periods, but I'm wondering if that just encouraged them to think spring was near and made the very cold temperatures that often followed worse for them.
