up-rooted holly tree & old yews

A recent heavy snow toppled my 8 foot holly tree and a handyman replanted it in another spot about a month ago. The tree was really healthy but didn't have much of a root system attached and it's now turning brown. Is there is any chance it will survive and come back, and if so, what can I do to get the best results?
I also have several old yews that were severely cut back (on the back side next to the house) last year. Their bases at ground level are anywhere from 4 inches to 2 feet in diameter and there is a lot of new growth coming out of many of the bare branches. Will these shrubs survive and is there anything that can be done to help them along?
Thanks for any helpful input!

Keep them well watered and fertilized. That will help them survive.
