Answer: Oh, I hope it's not just a bunch of sticks - but it should have developed floewrs and leaves by now. To check the status, scrape the bark from one or two of the stems and look for live tissue; if tissue beneath the bark is green, it's still alive and there's still hope; if tissue beneath the bark is brown, that stem or branch is dead. Keep checking various parts of the tree. If it's dead, it's dead, but if you find green tissue, there's still hope. I'll cross my fingers for you!
