The tree is stressed. Has there been a drought situation or site disturbance? Instead of watering every two days, which encourages shallow root development, water once a week during dry periods.

Here are some articles that should help pinpoint the stress to your tree. You can prune out the dead limbs except for the central leader. Also consider a call to your local cooperative extension agent for help.
