My dogwood of 20 years never bloomed this year-in fact no leaves either-absolutely no activity.What went wrong?
Thx in advance

If the branches are still pliable and there's green tissue beneath the bark (scrape it with your fingernail), your tree may just be slow in waking up this spring. If there is no green tissue beneath the bark, that branch is dead - try scraping the bark from other branches. Sudden death can be caused by disease, winter cold, or oversaturated soils all winter long. I hope your tree recovers!
