Answer: Sounds like some damage from a late frost, since only the new growth appears to be affected. Overwatering or a disease of some sort would likely affect the entire tree. If you want to prune away the damage you can but I suspect the tree will overcome the problem and drop the affected branch tips all on its own. Just take a wait and see attitude. I think your tree will be just fine. Best wishes with your garden!
