Dogwood Trees

Pink Dogwood

Brittney Simmons added on January 14, 2018 | Answered

I got a pink dogwood tree as a birthday gift 10 months ago. It's been planted for 9 months and 2 weeks with no issues, I came home today to find that one or both of my dogs has chewed it in half about a foot off the ground. I'm so upset as I was looking forward to spring to see if the buds were going to bloom. Is there any way of saving my tree, or using the branches a to create cuttings?

You do have a few options here. You can attempt to graft the branch back on using this article as a guide:

You can plant each individual cutting as a separate tree. This article will help you here:

And if none of those methods work for you, the tree will sprout new branches on its own. It may take it a little longer but it will likely recover.
