Our Arborvitae bushes were getting rather tall so my husband cut the tops off with a chain saw a couple weeks ago. The tops are so
dead now. We also had a skunk die near one bush and it is dying. Is there anything I can do to save these poor bushes? I've bann ed my husband from going near them. :)

Unfortunately, the only thing you can do it wait to see if it will recover. This is detrimental to an established tree such as this. They don't tolerate heavy pruning. You should only take out anything dead or dying.
