Below are some links I am going to recommend you review which will help you trouble-shoot your tree. If none of the below information resonates with what’s happening on your tree, I advise you to contact a local arborist.

The dead branches – is only one side of the tree affected? If so, it could potentially be verticillium wilt disease, which dogwoods are susceptible to. Here are some articles for your review:
