I had a few huge and tall conifer trees chopped down last June. Only the trunks are left now. Will they grow again? And how long will that take? A lot of the bark from the tree trunk is peeling off and can see the inner layer, but I cannot see any green. Please advise what I should do to them. Thank you!

Unlike many deciduous trees and shrubs, most conifers will not resprout if cut all the way back to the base. Typically, pruning of conifers is only done as a last resort because of this and then it's only trimming for shape or to remove dead/diseased growth.
