Its not going to die, its defoliated for winter and has some bark issues from old age and sun burn.  Looks pretty normal IMO.  Check back in June. 

If its really dying the branches will not bend, they will be dry and snap off when the wood is dead.  As long as they are flexible I wouldnt worry about it.
