How can I revive my baby poplar?

We planted a baby tulip poplar in the late summer when things had cooled down - We are in zone 7. We followed all the planting instructions carefully. We had a few of the leaves look scorched and die after planting, and the rest fell when the weather changed during the fall. Now the weather has warmed and some of our other trees are beginning to bloom, but I'm not seeing any evidence of new buds on the poplar. A few of the smaller twigs/branches have also become dry and broken off - But I did the fingernail test and the trunk as well as several of the remaining branches are still green. At this point, what can I do to give it the best chance of bouncing back?
