sick dogwood tree

Discussion in 'Cornus (dogwoods)' started by Unregistered, Feb 24, 2005.

  1. In addition to the leaves and flowers falling off this tree, now the bark is peeling off this tree. We've have only lived here 3 years, and I don't know how old this tree is. Any help anyone could give me would be appreciated.

    Hi Sue,

    You have two different posts going. I'm combining them into one. If you respond, just respond on this post instead of making a new one. That way we will have the whole story.

    It sounds like you have two possible problems. One is spot anthracnose and the other is canker. Take a look here.

    There is also a disease called dogwood anthracnose. It's not the same disease as the spot anthracnose.
