How can I tell if my Dogwood tree is dead?
I have a pink dogwood tree in my yard that seems to have gone dormant or died. This has always been a beautiful, robust looking dogwood. I can see where new growth and shoots have started but it is as if everything just stopped. There are no leaves on the tree and the buds have stopped growing. But if I break off a small branch it is green and you can see there is sap in the tree. Do dogwoods go through stages where they are dormant for a year? I would hate to cut this tree down to find out I made a mistake. Thanks
