This is difficult to determine, not knowing if this is an indoor or outdoor tree, and the size of tree that you have.
This could be a number of issues, including environmental; exposure to elements such as sun and drying winds.
Changes in water; too much or too little.
Root disease or pests.
See if the trees branches have died off. Scratch the bark, if you see green it's still alive.
