Yes indeed.  I guess I wasn't thinking that pulling the wires out is 
such a big deal.  You can always fish them through.  That's how they 
got in there in the first place, right?  Same job if you replace the 
whole thing.  You can try attaching the end of the wires to a pull 
line.  Pull them back to where the break is.  Then disconnect the 
wires from the line and section in a new piece of conduit.  Reattach 
the wires to the line.  Glue in the repair, preferably with the line 
at the glue site rather than the wire.  Then pull the line back to 
get the wires back where they belong.  Of course, this may not be 
worth the hassle if you have a decent fish tape.  Just pull the wires 
and fish them through when finished.  And of course I'm assuming that 
for whatever reason the tree dude isn't going to fix it.
