Hi Rich,

I'm wondering if you have noticed any more dead branches. If they are all on one side of the tree you might want to inspect around the rootflare to see if there are any stem girdling roots aka SGR's. Here's info and pics. Click on the links on the left at this first site. At the second and third sites click on the pics.

Also check to see that water isn't accumulating around the roots.
