What to do about herbicide causing fruit tree stress

Zone geelong | Anonymous added on November 25, 2019 | Answered

My husband has sprayed herbicide to kill weeds but it looks like it has affected all our fruit trees -- most have droopy leaves. Was wondering if I should continue to water them; to dilute the herbicide and prune any distressed leaves and branches off?
