I have recently moved 2 cypress from a neighbor's garden to my garden. One is doing fine but the other one is seemingly dying (foliage has turned brown and dropping). Why?

Check your watering. Newly planted shrubs or trees need daily water for the first 2 weeks.
Make sure the soil is moist but not soggy.
You can add 3 to 4 inches of hardwood mulch to help with moisture retention.
Also make sure that the Cypress was placed at the same depth it was in the previous planting location.
