Likely, it is very stressed from the root mass being disturbed. If this was given fresh soil that has too much nutrients, then this will compound the issue. Add overwatering, which is very common with potting up to new soil, and you will likely see what you are experiencing now.

The only thing that you can do is care for the small tree, perfectly, until it has a chance to recover.

You may treat with a fungicide to prevent any issues that are likely to happen with the unfolding of events.
