Could be a number of issues. Planted too high. Burlap and rope left in place at the time of planting. Trunk damage during planting. Borers. The list goes on. Take a couple close up pictures of the trunk from different angles and pull away the soil and mulch from the base of the tree to expose the top of the roots where they connect to the trunk. Take a picture and post it. Also pull back an area of the mulch about 1-2 ft away from the trunk and verify that the burlap has been removed if they are B&B trees. Examine the dead limbs in the upper canopy closely to see if the bark is damaged. I've had a couple tree diagnosis this year with the same issue just to find it was squirrels chewing the bark off the trees. Good luck.
