Even with proper planting, watering, soil content, fertilizer, a new planting may not survive and reasons for this to happen may not be known. Most reputable garden centers guarantee their trees, shrubs and some perennials for 1 year.

Do the branches snap off or are pliable? Do a scratch test on the bark. The link below explains this method.
And give the tree a bit more time to wake up. If no signs of life; check with the seller for a replacement.
