I’m sorry to hear about your tree. It’s hard to say whether it is alive or not. I suggest that you continue to water it, keeping it moist, not wet. Place it in a shady, safe place and see if it comes back. I commend you on your planting ability at starting the tree. So, why not try again this fall and monitor it carefully so that critters don't destroy it.
Thanks for sending in the question. Good luck with your tree.
