I can't tell what is killing it from that description. Usually when an established tree starts to decline or die it is due to a root problem. Soil disturbances, cutting roots, damage from weed and feed fertilizers, etc. are all possibilities. I suggest you contact your local County Extension Office to see if they can look at a photo or sample to help you further.
