Unfortunately it sounds as though your tree has been severely stressed over a period of time and may not make it as a result. Usually, when the new growth and old growth are both dried, the plant has had it. Sicne this was an expensive plant, you might want to check with your county extension (345-3283)to see if there is any hope or if they have any suggestions on caring for it in the meantime. I'm sorry about your tree.
