Thank you for your question. It is difficult to predict whether a plant will survive heavy equipment compression. It depends on how much weight, how long it was crushed, the type of soil, and how wet it was. I suggest you contact your county Extension office, where staff can help with these issues, and give you advice. Here is their webpage, with contact information at the bottom: https://extension.uga.edu/county-offices/clayton.html Good luck!
