Need some advice on our fruit trees-

Our order arrive may 18th. (2 1/2 weeks ago) All trees were planted the following morning/day.
Of the 20 we ordered only three (3) are sprouting leaves. The yellow del. looks great, it has several leaf combos up the trunk. One butternut has a small leaf set at the base and a green weeping willow has a few leafs starting. The rest have nothing, no buds, no signs of anything.
Question: Do we keep watering and hope for something, do we prune back to the ground and wait. If we need to cut them back do we do it now or wait till fall?

Most of the trees still have a little flexibility to the trunk but some are starting to get dried out at the tops.

We are watering daily, have good drainage, weather has been normal w/rain and temps.

I have sent an e-mail to the company we got these from, just thought I would give a shout out to see if anyone here has advice too.
