This is unfortunate, but sometimes transplant shock is hard to avoid.It looks like one may be a little more hardy than the other, as this one looks to have succumb to overwatering. This tree needs moist, well draining soil. But it should never remain saturated for long periods.

This can be a sign of overfertilization, as well, but it would have to be in compost, without cutting the compost with soil, or it had to have been fed way too much for this to be the case.

Sometimes, it can recover, once the environment is more favorable for the tree. This article will help you to give this tree proper care:
