Unfortunately sometimes you can't explain the loss of a healthy plant.

Forsythia are quite hardy, and my recommendation if you see no leafing out of the plant, would be to trim it down.

The roots may still be alive and then have the energy to start your plant growing again. I never give up on plants until I'm sure.
