The Q&A Archives: Bark peeling off trunk of my Dogwood Trees

Question: I have 3 dogwoods that I planted 3 years ago and last year I noticed part of the bark peeling off and exposing the next layer of tree. I have Red Bud trees planted close and no problem with them. Is this the nature of Dogwoods? Can I wrap they with something to keep from harms way. I have no dogs or anything like that. The peeling is on trunk & 6 in. from the ground and 6 to 8 in. long.
