Q.I Planted Two Small Leaf Linden Trees. They Had To Be Planted Where The Previous Trees Were.

This is where two large stumps were ground out. Under the mulch the soil feels wet but I don’t know beyond that where the roots would stretch to, if it’s getting enough water. The smaller tree looks droopy. How do I know if they are getting enough water? What do I look for?

If these trees were removed due to disease, and it was not adequately killed off, then these trees will suffer the same fate.

It is recommended to plant a completely unrelated species, in place of something that dies, in order to prevent the disease from killing of the replacement.

Unfortunately, your new trees will likely suffer the same fate, until something new is planted.

In between, I would try solarizing the soil. This article will help:
