Check the soil to make sure it is moist but not soggy.
If you're not sure whether the tree has received enough water, use a trowel to dig at least 2 inches below the soil surface a few inches from the base of the trunk. If the soil is moist 2 inches down, the tree likely has enough water for the day.
I would also contact the garden center that you purchased the tree from. Most reputable growers will help you with issues and replace a tree that dies.
