It appears that my new holly bushes have been stripped bare over the winter by bunnies. All the leaves are gone, but the stalks remain. Will they survive? What can I do?

If the Holly is cut back it should sprout new leaves from the area where the leaves joint the stem.
If the bark is eaten off of the branches, they probably are gone and should be pruned back to intact branches.
Wait until spring to see what emerges before making decisions on removal of the Holly.
