Leylandii Hedge Root Damage

t1fitz added on April 28, 2016 | Answered

I have a 10 foot leylandii hedge which took over 20 years to grow. Recently, my neighbor caused malicious damage to it at one side by digging up all the roots using a digging machine. Is there anything I can do to save this hedge from dying because of his uncivil action?

The best answer we can give you is: Maybe. It's going to depend on how long the roots have been exposed, how healthy the roots were to begin with, etc. Here's an article that may help you: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/environmental/dealing-with-uprooted-plants.htm
