Roots need oxygen (air) to function. Clay is so tightly packed with fine particles that there is no air space. I'm afraid that 4S is right. Any more than two inches of soil will stress the trees. No, they don't die immediately. It will sometimes take a couple of years.

With the majority of the root base left untouched,(Not Covered by additional dirt/clay), you guys really think that the trees won't adapt and continue to strive? Looking at the photo, you can plainly see it's not fresh dirt/clay completely surrounding their base. Just my .02 cents worth

Another job well done, a pondless pond is growing on me. Don't have to worry about algae build up nearly as much. lol Looking forward to the next one:-)
