Q.How do I know if tree is dead

Zone Lexington, Ky | Anonymous added on May 30, 2016 | Answered

I bought a willow cherry tree in April. It’s about 45″ tall. Today, it lost all of its leaves, dried out even though I watered it. Ends are dry. I scratched the bottom trunk, and it is brown.
How do you know if it’s time to say it’s dead?

Given that this is a new planting and you had a scratch test that was 'brown' I would approach the nursery you bought this tree from and inquire about a replacement.
