Caring for Avocado Trees That Were Not Watered?

dead looking treesWe are renting and our well pump broke. It took over 4 months to fix and so these trees have been through a summer in Ojai California (high temps) all summer. The landlords say that now that the well if fixed we just have to start watering, but I am not so sure. I am looking for expert advice hopefully and thank you!

IF you do not start watering them again, they will die. Now, you can start slowly so as not to 'drown' them. The problem with trees that have spent a lot of time in drought is that the root structure becomes loose, so that when excessive water comes back and loosens the soil, the trees can fall over. If you water them slowly you should avoid this problem.

Water very well 2-3 times a week. This will encourage deeper root growth.
