Leaves, yellowing and falling.

My Dogwood Tree normally has green leaves, but now they are yellowing and falling to ground. What can I do to reverse this process?

You did not mention what type of dogwood you are referring to, Cornus florida, flowering dogwood or Cornus Kousa, Chinese Dogwood.
You can send us photos of the whole tree, around the base, and affected foliage.
We have been getting reports of Kousa dogwood exhibiting yellowing leaves and dropping. The photos we have been receiving looks like the issue may be more environmental in nature and not an insect or disease. The new growth of Kousa dogwood tends to wilt when it gets hot. With all the moisture we have been getting this may also be a factor. Monitor the growth of the plant throughout the rest of the season.
