Use the old sq. tail on a string trick....play keep-away with him till he barks, then let him have the tail......gently then, remove the tail and start over again, each time telling him what a good dog he is, and say dead over and over as you gently take the tail away. If you toss the string over a limb and yank it up and down....he may bark easier. Good luck!

Does he see the squirrel and not bark at it? I know some young dogs won't bark unless they can see the squirrel. Once they build up confidence in themselves they will then usually start treeing by scent only. How old is your pup? You might try geting the squirrel to timber and maybe that will get him excited. Excitement is the key!
