Trees don't like being moved. Moving a tree that size is specialised operation that requires considerable preparation if success is to be guarenteed.

The roots that do the important work of absorbing moisture are tiny and you almost certainly damaged an awful lot of them. It is the ability of the tree to absorb moisture that has been compromised and your best chance now is to water regularly during dry periods. Be caeful not to over water, however. Roots need oxygen. There's more advice on planting aftercare here.
