I had these trees planted a little over a month ago from a different location.

There are no brown/dying leaves, but some of the limbs are limp even though the leaves are green.

They are getting plenty of water, so what could be the problem?

Those are pretty big to be transplanted if you dug from another spot. Chances are they lost most of the fine roots that take up water. Those need to regenerate. If you overwater now the ones left will not get enough oxygen and suffocate. Transplanting is an art.

However it makes a difference if you dug from ground or planted a container grown plant. Container plants might have enough fine roots to get started if you are patient and don’t drown the plant.

Grower told me to water each tree 10-15 gallons a week.
