Is there anything I can do to see if my ash tree is dead or just very slow in leafing after we had it cut back last fall?

Do the branches snap and break off or bend?
You can do a scratch test on the branches. The links below will help you.
Weather patterns can effect tree leaf out, so depending on the spring temperatures that you are having you may need to give the tree more time.
