Before you can save it, you need to know what's wrong with it. First , think about any changes that may have happened around the plant: have trees grown up around it to shade it? has something happened to change the soil around it so that it's staying too wet or too dry? was herbicide used in its neighborhood that might have blown or washed into it? Look at the leaves and stems to see if there are strange colorations or markings - these could be indicators or disease or pests.

If you see signs of disease or insects, you can take some leaf samples to the Extension Service for analysis. This link will help you locate the nearest one: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/extension-search/
