A builder next door has dug up part of my border, in which there is a 250+ year old pear tree growing. He appears to have cut through half the roots to one side of the main tree trunk. What can I do to ensure the tree will not die. It still provides fruit regularly every year?

There is nothing to be done. The tree will recover more than likely. Its stability might have been compromised, if half its root plate is gone.
