I have a japanes maple that was purchased early this summer and a month after we planted it the leaves started turning brown and curling then fell off, it produced new leaves, but the same thing happened. Now the small tree has no leaves. I am afraid it is dead. What is wrong with my tree? Can I save it? It is in full sun and is in a clay soil.

If the leaves are turning crispy brown and falling off, your Japanese maple is getting too much sunshine. These trees prefer only an hour or two of morning sun and then shade from the hot afternoon sun. You may want to replant it this fall, in a less exposed area. Best wishes with your tree!
