If you have been experiencing extremes in temperatures, such as much warmer weather, then the tree could be stressed, which would make it go into dormancy early to survive. Other than keeping it well watered, there is little else you can do but it should recover on its own. Another possibility could be insects (which would most likely affect the area nearest the crown) or some type of fungus.
