Help With Struggling Dogwood

Paulyboy added on June 18, 2014 | Answered

My well established Dogwood is struggling to leaf out this spring. It is mid-June and it is trying to leaf out but barely. Is it just a result of a harsh winter? Will it recover on its own? Should I do something to help it?

You should prune off any dead branches. If your tree can recover it will, though it may take 2 or 3 years. In the meantime, this article will help you make sure your tree has the best possible care:
