Last fall we transplanted a young red maple tree. In the spring, leaves bloomed on less than 1/3 of the tree. Some branches look like they are dead. Any way to rejuvenate the tree?

This happened to ours. All I did was prune down the branch until I hit "good" wood, then walked away. It's fleshing out beautifully. Prune it now, in spring.
