As a general rule the planting hole should be dug twice as wide as the root ball, and that the tree be placed into the planting hole at the same depth that the plant was in the pot.
Make sure you are watering adequately and that the soil is well draining. Your tree is stressed, but if you maintain the moisture to the tree, it should be able to recover.
