We had French Drains installed in our yard in May.The trees near the digging are looking as though it is October. Are we going to loose them?

It is possible that they suffered significant root damage during the digging and any change in drainage patterns can also have a major effect on established trees; color change and even leaf drop would be signs of that type of stress. You might want to consult with a professionally trained and certified arborist on site as to the prognosis for the trees.
