Hello, This tree was transplanted about 2 years ago. Up until this year it was fully leafed out in the summer and appeared healthy. Last year we did have a late season drought and, though the tree appeared well, I suspect it was quite dehydrated by season's end. I was not watering it through this time out of ignorance. We also had a minimal snowpack over the winter, and this is the result now. I've been soaking the ground regularly as rain has still been minimal. The upper buds seem brittle, and the branches do not "flex" or bend well. Any recommendations? Can I save this tree? Should I cut it back and allow the new growth to form a new crown? Or is there a chance it will recover still? Thank you.
