last spring we had 2 tulip trees planted, now they have no leaves on them at the end of March. Are they dead? They are very tall and bare.

In N.C., tulip trees typically flower before other deciduous trees leaf out. Look for swelling leaf buds on the branches. If you see none, that's not a good sign. Do small branches snap off when bent instead of bending? If you scratch a small, thin area of bark, do you see green tree tissue? Poor planting technique may not show up immediately. Contact the seller to see if there is a one year warranty. How to do a scratch test is covered in this article: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/tgen/tree-scratch-test.htm
