Possible for Tree Branches to Still be Alive if They Do Not Leaf Out?

May 22, 2019

We have a 25 year old sugar maple which has a vigorous growth of leaves on one side, but the other side is only leafing out now. Some of the branches look as though they won't leaf out at all. I noticed last fall that the side that is slow to leaf out had its leaves turn orange earlier than the other healthier side of the tree last year. Do you have any idea what might be causing this? If the tree recovers from whatever might be ailing it, is it possible for deciduous tree branches to not leaf out one year, but then leaf out next year? Thank you.
