I wouldn't spray it any more but I would prune the branches back to encourage healthy new growth. If the tree was distressed for a long period of time it may take a long time for it to recover. The best thing you can do for it is to water it once or twice a week and let it establish and recover. You should see some new growth when the roots become strong again. Good luck with your tree!
