Dogwood Trees
Q.

Our mature Dogwood tree has what appears to be a small black cluster attached to the smal branches—any ideas

Zone middle Tennessee | gfpryor added on August 3, 2018 | Answered

It is a mature tree that is growing on the north side of our house in a very tree-filled area The side of the tree that has the most problems is also in the shadiest area. It gets mostly the afternoon sun.The small black clusters appear to turn green after a while. More of them seen to collect and connect in the \'joints\' of the branches. Unable toprovide images?
