I replanted a tree. The leaves are wilty looking. Is there anything I can do to pep up the leaves and make them look healthy?

It is not at all unusual for newly transplanted trees and shrubs to go into shock. Healthy plants will overcome this condition in a few weeks. You may have severed some roots during the digging and replanting process. If the damage isn't too extensive, I suspect your tree will recover in time. You can help things along by providing water on a regular basis and withholding fertilizer until new growth appears. Most landscape trees and shrubs need one-inch of water each week, especially during the spring and summer growing seasons.
