This indicates a watering issue. Either the tree is not getting enough water or there is something affecting the roots that is preventing them from taking up water. The plant may have an air pocket in the soil, causing the roots to dry out. Step firmly around the base of the tree to collapse any air pockets. I would also flood the area with water, meaning leave the hose running for 20-30 minutes. This will help further collapse any pockets in the soil as well as provide it with much needed water.
