Why has the leaves on my Staghorn tree fell off?

I had a problem with insects eating my shrub plants and I moved my staghorn tree into the centre of my garden to avoid contact with the infected shrub but it looks like the tree has became infected.

It is in a large pot with compost and the leaves have all dried out and are falling off there is some evidence of damage but I can not see any insects or grubs on the tree?

Any ideas what could be wrong?

    Is it perhaps in a much sunnier spot now and you haven't been watering enough?

    Thanks yes the leaves do look slightly scorched but there is evidence of something eating the leaves or that they are dying off.

    I will post a photo shot if I can that may give a clearer view of what could be the problem.
