orange tree seems to be dying

hello. i am new here. my father moved away and i took his orange tree that was in a pot. when he had it, he had gotten fruit from it twice.
i placed it close to my mango tree, where it would get a good amount of sun light. i did fertilize once, and i got some flowers but nothing else. now there is very minimal amount of leaves on it. i did add some soil to it cause it looked like the base of the roots were kind of exposed. any advice for me? suggestions and comments welcome. thanks

RE: orange tree seems to be dying

Always keep a tree well-watered after transplanting. The shock may have knocked off the leaves. DO NOT fertilize this tree again...until it is growing good. Use your finger nail to scrape below the bark to see if it is still green (alive).
