Red Bud tree is not blooming, how can I tell if it is dead?

I have a Red Bud tree that was planted last year. It did not bloom or grow any leaves this year. How can I tell if the tree is dead or I just need to give it some TLC and more time?

If you scratch the bark off of the tree in-between the end of a limb and tree itself (somewhere in the middle) and you see green, your tree is alive. If you do not find any green, the Red Bud has died. If it is still alive, water it weekly with around 3\" of water and apply a product such as Miracle Grow to the tree. It won\'t recover right away, but should bloom by the next season.
