Is there any way I can save the tree?
A healthy eastern redbud may live as long as 50-75 years. But many succumb earlier to verticillium wilt, borers or canker. It isn't possible to diagnosis your tree's problem with a brief description. Your options are to have a professional arborist look at it and recommend treatment or to take pictures and one of your spindly branches to your county Extension Office. The Master Gardeners there may be able to help. Find your local office from this website: Search.Extension.org

My red bud tree appeared dead, no buds. But several little new leaves appeared at the bottom of the trunk. Is there any way to save it
It's possible your tree is a grafted Red Bud Tree; and that the top of the tree died off. The shoots you are seeing are likely from the root stock.
If the tree died, there is nothing that can be done. If this is a new planting, within the last year, you can talk with the greenhouse to see if they will replace the tree.
