Bay Leaves plant. Any HOPE?

I had this bay leaves plant for 7-8 years until last September. I moved to new place and until early spring  it was look all settled but since then it gone to this. What did I do wrong? Is there any hope or something I can do to save this plant.

    No photos have appeared on this thread, @dpatel2130.  You need to click on the photo icon and follow the instructions... sometimes you have to reduce the size of your picture.

    Now they've all appeared... how odd!  Anyway, thanks, @dpatel2130, that's helpful.  Was your bay tree growing in the soil in your previous garden, or did you plant it out from a pot?  Something has clearly stressed it, but it isn't all dead.  You could prune off the black stems, which won't come back, but the green bits might well grow again.  Keep it regularly watered so it's not stressed any further, and hope...

    @Liriodendron, thank you for prompt reply. The bay tree was in soil all the time in my previous garden. I took great care and spent lots of time get it tall and straight. I will follow your advice and see what happens.

    I wonder if the move in September meant it didn't have time to put out new roots before the arrival of winter. It could be that the cold weather stressed it or maybe it just doesn't like the new site.

    @Ceres, thank you for your response on my both posts. Well, I have to hope that nature help revival of bay tree. And Apricot seeding, I do put outside for few hours. It lovely feeling plant grows. Power of the nature.
