Heartsick about Dogwood - Is it doomed? (pics)
I have 3 Cornis Kousa Heartthrob Dogwoods which were planted about three years ago. This year, i noticed that the bark at the base of one of the trees was sort of "flaking off." In no time at all, the bark pretty much all around the base of the tree was completely sloughed.
Can anyone tell me what's going on with this tree? Is it diseased? And moreover, is it doomed? Is there anything i can do to save it (assuming it needs saving)?
I have to say this breaks my heart, because of all three dogwoods, this one is the most beautiful in structure and bloom.
