Your new tree should have flowered and then leafed out in very early spring. If it didin't, and the twigs are dark and wrinkled, the tree is dead. I'm not sure why it died but it's possible there's not enough room for root growth if it has to compete with the roots of your previous tree. Wish I had better news for you!
