Black Cherry is a pioneer plant and doesn't need much, if any additional water. Shallow, spreading roots, so mulching helps a lot. I only water when wilting in the first year and never after that.

The only thing I would recommend at this point is to leave them alone and if you mow, mulch with your grass clippings to give them a shot of N. If you don't have grass clippings, maybe a little compost/compost tea might help.
