We are putting in a pool and a couple of our 10-year-old trees (ornamental pear and ash) got a root clipped in the process (just one). They possibly have not been getting enough water during the last few weeks, either, as we have been hand watering. It's been 3+ weeks and they do look sort of dry. Is there anything I can do, other than water a lot, to keep them from dying?
