We just planted a 35-gallon tababula tree in zone 9b, bought from a local nursery and planted professionally, about one month ago. We have been watering daily slowly for about one hour each morning. After a recent heavy frost, the leaves turned brown. Will the tree survive and what should we expect.

It is likely that it will survive. It will just take a little while to recover. They are hardy in your area, but you may want to cover them with burlap, canvas, or some other material on the colder nights where heavy frost is expected.
