New avocado problem?

We planted this tree about a month ago and it looks healthy except for the top part. (pictured)

Southern California
Tree is about 6' tall by 4' wide

The brown looks like sunburn from southern exposure but when I trimmed a brown branch, the inside looked brown as pictured. Is this a bigger problem than sunburn? Should I try topping it below the lowest browned branch (about a foot lower than the top)?
