I am going to give you a link here to an article I wrote about rose trees to help you understand how they are created. So sorry to hear that your was snapped off like that.... :( You may be able to graft the snapped off piece back to what is left in the ground but it is 50-50 chance of success at the very best. Especially if much time has passed since the snapping off has happened (more than a couple days). I would suggest that another rose tree like it be obtained and planted or perhaps another one that you always wanted to grow and enjoy. Here are the links for some helpful information for you:

Here is a good video on grafting that is similar to what you would need to do to attempt the grafting: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_wSHkYuSOMo
