Eucalyptus Tree

Our eucalyptus tree seemed to have survived the winter but now seems to be dying. The leaves have turned brown and are very dry and crispy. Is this an infection, has it been poisoned, or has the unusually hot weather early this year caused it?

The leaves may be turning brown due to a delayed reaction to cold damage. but it might also be a fungus. If the stems are still alive, the leaves will regrow without help if it is cold damage. In case it is a fungus, I would treat the tree with a fungicide. I personally like neem oil, as it kills any fungus and any pests that may be attacking the tree.
