Each spring can bring different timing of leaf out. Check the neighborhood, are you seeing other trees in your area leafing out yet? Hardwoods take longer to leaf out in most growing zones.

Be patient and if you are concerned about the health of the tree you can test a few branches. Live branches bend, dead branches snap off.
You an also scratch a bit of bark. This article will help you with this test.
