Dying or Dead Tree

Anonymous added on January 11, 2011 | Answered

I have a very young tree - less than 10 years old, around 7. The tree itself seems in good shape, but it didn't have leaves this year or most of last. Other than calling an arborist,  is there something I can do to check or help it?
