Answer: Usually the best time to transplant trees is during the dormant season or fall or early spring rather than during the heat of the summer, so I suspect your tree is suffering severe transplant shock. Try to keep the soil evenly moist but not soggy, protect it from drying wind, and be patient. It may drop all of its leaves and then slowly releaf out for you, or it may eventually die. Some gardeners report good results using seaweed or kelp (from the garden center) to treat severely stressed trees. It might be worth a try. Good luck with your tree!
