    We have two dogwood trees in our yard. One is 6 years and one is 5 years.
    The leaves of the younger one have turned a crisp gray brown. This has
    happened over the last several weeks. We read that if there is a unusual
    warm dry time that a dogwood needs extra water at the edge of the roots.
    What kind of fertilizer should we be using? The edges of the older tree are
    beginning to look the same way. Should they be ferterlized now or wait until
    spring?

    Fertilizer is used to correct nutrient deficiencies, your trees have a fungus, aren't getting enough water or have some other problem that isn't likely to be addressed by fertilizing.
