Deer chewed off all the leaves on my baby redbud tree. Will they grow back?

Montgomery County Maryland trees and shrubs deer damage redbud trees

It is unlikely that leaves will regenerate on this plant in any great numbers. My guess would be, since this is a small plant, you may possibly see regrowth from the base. Best to create a physical barrier to keep the deer off if it- if it does resprout.
