It sounds like the upper graft portion, which is usually a different Linden species, has died. It sounds like the bottom portion, or the rootstock, is still alive. This WILL be a new tree or trees, but it may not be the tree that you purchased.

In the future, these trees will prefer a Spring or Fall planting. The heat of Summer will almost always cause the transplant to fail.
