Dogwood

Asked August 10, 2020, 2:28 PM EDT

I mulched around my Dogwood tree with newspaper then covered with A black fabric-like material then bark mulch to keep ornamental grass I removed from continuing to grow. My dogwood now looks like it’s in some distress because the leaves appear to be drooping. Is what I did damaging my tree or could it be something else and just coincidentally happening after my action?

Good Morning! If you can submit pictures (or at least a description) of the symptoms your dogwood is exhibiting it'd be helpful to the discussion. You can email me directly (hopefully with pictures) at cjmurphy@udel.edu and we can take it from there.

I’m not sure if the photo went through. Please advise.

I replied on 3/13 with a photo I have not heard back. Did the photo not go through. Please let me know so I can try again. Thank you. Evelyn
