    This can most likely be attributed to transplant shock, which is common in new plantings. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/environmental/learn-how-to-avoid-and-repair-transplant-shock-in-plants.htm

    Also, you say you water daily and have a moat-like bowl around the tree. This can actually cause water to sit in the area resulting in root rot or other fungal problems. I would first suggest that you mound some soil up around the tree so the water isn't just pooling up around it.
