There was not enough information in your photo to see why the branch was browning. There may be several reasons. You did not mention how old the tree is, what the site is like, sun or shade, any type of construction in the area around the roots, could be a broken branch, trunk or root issue, are there other trees planted nearby, etc.

You can resubmit your photos and submit photos of the whole tree, around the base of the tree, and affected foliage so we can see what you may be dealing with.
