Bugs on tree last year, but used a spray to kill them
"Silver maples are already budding here in Iowa, so they should be well ahead of that in Texas. Scratch back the bark on twigs; if you see green, the branch is still alive. If it's beige or tan under the bark, then the branch is dead. You mentioned spraying the pruning-cut spray on the tree; if there was a lot of damage to the bark, then that was probably fatal to the tree.
