Q.Lawn Service Wacked Off A Bunch Of My Crocus Plants.Is There Any Hope They Will Survive?
a few are cut at the ground. Most have maybe 1/4-1/2 inch remaining. Is there something I can do to help? And secondly, do I need to be concerned when the service comes around to scatter new mulch? will it burn the crocus, daffodil, and tulips that have sprouted?

As long as the bulb is not cut, they should be OK. However, they won't get the benefit of the leaves collecting energy for next year's blooms as it sounds as if the leaves left with the blossom. So, they may be slow to recover. It could be a couple years before you get blooms again.
The mulch will not burn anything. I would point out your bulbs to the lawn service, though, to make sure they don't remove any more foliage or cover the bulbs with mulch.
