Default Will my CIDP make it?


I live in SoCal and recently transplanted an already pruned, 10ft Canary Island Date Palm. I'd done a lot of research about how to dig out the rootball, prepare the new hole, etc. We saved as much of the rootball as we could, over a foot out from the trunk all around.

I'm watering her 2x a week (soaking the area around the tree - used to water 1x day in the beginning, then every other day etc), the soil is well drained and part washed sand, she's been in the ground for 2 1/2 months and is definitely growing new fronds in the center. A couple of weeks ago, I used some slow-release palm fertilizer.

However, since a couple of weeks after the transplant, the outermost ring of fronds has died after browning. I thought, OK, some rootball was naturally a bit damaged.

Unfortunatley, the next ring of fronds has also slowly started to brown and die and I noticed that the tips of fresher fronds have also turned a bit brown. Now I'm worried that the tree might not make it.

Can the experts here take a look at these pictures and let me know if my treed is doomed? - Is there anything I can do differently to stop the browning?
