That sort of behavior could mean the tree was girdled or the roots were
damaged or killed. By girdled, that doesn't mean a cut, but rather
that the cambium may have died all the way around the tree in at least
one area. It wouldn't show on the surface. Watch and wait is all you
can usually do.

My two year old sour cherry is growing oddly. We had that weird
weather...very warm in March than a very hard freeze. This cherry
appeared to still be dormant during this period (though the other
cherries had blossomed). About three weeks ago this cherry
blossomed...not strongly, but every branch did have some flowers. Now
it has set a few cherries...maybe two or three on each branch. What it
HAS NOT done, is leafed out. There are some tiny leaves and leaf buds
on each branch, but it's like the tree has stalled out.
I did put a fertilizer spike down and we are watering. All my other
fruit trees are in full leaf (though of course no fruit after the
freeze). Even the pluot that I thought was dead, has come back strong.
