Dead Mesquite tree

I have a newly planted 24" box Mesquite tree. Within 3 days of being planted, all of the leaves turnes brown as well as the branches truning brittle.

What could be the cause? The tree is getting full sun for at least 8 + hours a day and is on a drip system. The Arizona temp's have been around 115 degrees since planting.

Please help!
