Why Won’t My Dogwood Leaf

Anonymous added on May 2, 2014 | Answered

I have two new Dogwood trees that were replanted from another yard to my yard in February of this year by a landscaper. I've waited for them to begin to leaf but they haven't yet. When we scrape the limbs, there is green showing. One tree even has the beginning of a leaf at the base of the trunk. It is now May and still no leaves. We are thinking of pruning to help them wake up. What do you suggest?
